Rumored upcoming change to Google Maps could potentially upset many users

Google may take away the Google Maps Driving Mode, come 2024, per a new report.

Code tinkerers at 9to5Google decompiled the latest version of the Google app and discovered some code snippets that indicate Google will kill off the Driving Mode in February 2024.

When using Google Maps for navigation, a black bar appears at the bottom when you start driving, with an option for summoning the Assistant on the left and a dashboard on the right that lets you listen to podcasts, make calls, and send messages.

In short, it’s a quick way of doing other stuff while your driving. A string in the new version of the Google app says “This view is going away in February,” and “To call, message, or play media while navigating, tap the mic to use Assistant.” The changes are not live yet.
