When Google introduced its revamped, more interactive Google Maps back in May, it was in preview, invite-only stage. Now everyone can use the new Google Maps.
Updates include a new interface, better location discovery, side-by-side driving and transit directions, and more personalised directions.
Note, however, that following Google Maps' Twitter announcement, quite a few early users are complaining about features missing in the new version, such as multi-point routing (so you can add multiple stops to your directions). If you don't like the new version, you can go back to the old one in the settings menu and select "Classic Maps".
