Google released Apple Watch support for Maps in 2015 and put an end to it in 2017, while assuring that the feature would make an appearance in the future. The tech giant did not give details about why it chose to discontinue the feature or how long it would take to bring it back. Now, three years later, Maps' Watch Support has come back and is available on Apple's App Store.
The comeback of Watch support for Maps was hinted in August when Google said that it would be making an appearance in the coming weeks.
It is reported that Maps' return to Apple Watch is not bringing a lot of features with it, so users still may not be as satisfied. While it would be easier to get help to travel to preset destinations like work or home, setting up a new destination would require starting an entire process on smartphone.
Apple Watch support for Maps can be accessed by simply updating the Maps' app if it is already downloaded on phone.
