There are a good amount of people who have Windows OS installed on their computers, and over 350 millions of them are using the latest Windows 10 OS. However, Google doesn’t want to bring its services to this popular platform yet outside of its basic Google Search app.

However, that doesn’t mean other developers can’t do that. A developer named Rajat Singh has released a new application for Windows 10 OS called Maps App Discovery that uses Google Maps’ API to deliver Google Maps on Windows 10 OS.

Here are the features that Maps App Discovery comes with:

  • Street View
  • Earth View
  • Satellite imagery
  • Ability to drag maps
  • Detailed directions.

As expected, the application allows you to insert your destination and will show you the shortest way from your location to the place you want to reach. It’s good to know that this application is supported by Windows 10 PC, Windows 10 Mobile and Surface Hub. In addition, the application is completely free and you can download it right now from the Windows Store.

We are not sure why Google hasn’t released its own application for the popular Windows OS until now, but maybe now that Rajat Singh has released Maps App Discovery, the company will have some second thoughts and will finally launch an official Google application for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.

Have you tested Maps App Discovery on your Windows 10 PC or Windows 10 Mobile yet? Tell us your thoughts about this new map application and if you have complaints about it, let us know!
