Along with the release of Android Oreo Go Edition, Google outed a lightweight version of many of its apps, including Gmail, Assistant, Files Go, and Maps. Of all these apps that are included in Android Go, Files Go file manager was the only one that was available as a separate download via Google Play Store.

Well, starting today, Android users can try out a new app that's lighter on resource requirements: Google Maps Go. The application is now available in the Google Play Store and is fully compatible with all devices powered by Android 4.1 and up.

The lighter version of the Google Maps app was specifically designed to run smoothly on devices with limited memory. Also, the app should also work on unreliable networks without compromising speed to offer their location, real-time traffic updates, directions and other information.
