Google made a few announcements at their I/O 2018 keynote about Android, VR/AR, YouTube, Google Assistant and more.
Volvo has announced a partnership with Google to bring the Google Assistant, the Google Play Store, Google maps and other Google services to their next-generation version of their Sensus infotainment system which is based on Android.
Google and Nintendo have teamed up to bring Mario to Google Maps, just in time for MAR10 day, which is tomorrow (March 10th).
Google has announced that Maps will be getting a real-time location sharing feature. Inside the app, you’ll be able to share your location in real-time, including navigation routes.
Today (February 8th 2015), marks the 10th anniversary of Google Maps.
Google made the announcement official on their Google Lat Long blog and had this to say:
For 10 years Google Maps has made it easier to navigate and explore your world. If you hopped in your DeLorean for a trip back to before 2005, you’d remember the days when we were all dependent on paper maps, print-outs, post-its and sometimes even a compass for directions! Getting from point A to B is something we do all day, every day—from finding the fastest way to get to work, to dropping the kids off on a carpool route, to meeting friends for drinks at a new spot—so it should be as easy as possible. That’s why we created Google Maps and why we’ve spent the last 10 years figuring out better ways for you to get around.

Here’s to another 10 years of Google’s innovation and improvement to their existing and future products to add to the “Google experience.”
