It will be very easy for users to identify any safe location with emojis, just need to remember which emoji is used for a location.

Google also shared an image announcing the feature that hints at how it could change Maps.

After that, write the name of the place by clicking on New List and choose the Choose icon button at the top, here you can select any emoji.

It should be noted that at the beginning of September, the company quietly made a significant change to the user interface of Google Maps.

Due to this change, the Google Maps service has started to look different to most people than before.

This update changes the colors of Google Maps for phone and desktop users.

Now gray is used for roads, greenish blue for water and bluish green for parks.

Previously, Google Maps used yellow for roads and a slightly darker blue for water.
