One way for Microsoft to continuously improve its apps is by rolling out new features for Insiders before releasing a final version. An example of this is the latest update for Windows Maps, made official through the Feedback Hub. It reportedly brings better search results and bug fixes. Here’s what Microsoft said:

Applicable Rings: Release Preview – Store update.
•For those of you living in countries or regions where we offer nearby search results, we’ve made improvements to our algorithms to give you closer and better search results.
•Bug fixes to improve reliability and performance

The search results on Windows Maps have not offered the most high-quality, accurate results, something that has always been an issue for users. Microsoft heard the complaints and recently released an update for Windows Maps aimed at improving search results specifically for those countries and regions where it offers nearby search results.

Windows 10 Maps update

Search algorithms have been improved to give users more accurate results, but it’s only available for members in the Release Preview ring.  This is why the update for Insiders bumps the app to version 4.1602.760.0 instead of 5.1 as it’s currently showing for regular users.

Microsoft also rolled out bug fixes to improve reliability and performance. As always, Microsoft wants to make sure that every update works fine before releasing the final version. Previous updates included Microsoft adding live stream footage, new Windows Maps Apps for Windows 10 mobile, an app revamp, and offline map updates.

If you happen to encounter any issues with your default Maps app in Windows 10, have a look at our guide on how to fix them or take a look at other map alternatives.
