Google has announced its Google Maps will be beefed up with new features, including offline support and integrating it with other apps like Uber.

With other major tech players like Microsoft and Apple offering mobile mapping services, Google believes the latest features in its Google Maps could edge out the competition.

The offline mode enables users to save routes and locations so they would be able to access it even without WiFi or a decent cellular signal. Offline maps can be found under profiles.

Users can now also search bars and restaurants according to filters such as opening hours, price, and user ratings. Meanwhile, Uber app users can also integrate it with Google Maps and find out if hitching a ride would be more convenient than public transportation or walking home. The Uber app can also be activated straight from Google Maps.

Other new features include displaying which lane to stay in to avoid missing the highway exit, as well as integrating Street View on place cards.
