Home » Yandex.Maps app receives major Windows 10 update

Some of you might know that popular apps aren’t the same around the world. While some might not have heard of Yandex Maps, the app is very popular in Russia. Recently, it received a massive update with a lot of new features that improved the app’s quality on Windows 10 devices.

With Windows 10 having become a cross-platform operating system, it goes without saying that you can use Yandex on both your smartphone and your computer. Let’s take a closer look at some of the features the latest update brings.

Space efficient vector maps

The app’s vector maps make it so less storage is used on your device by each individual map. This is great in itself, but there’s more. Vector maps also allow you to turn the map entirely. You can adjust the viewing angle by swiping the screen with your fingers on smartphones or obviously, use your mouse on the computer.

Improved search criteria

Getting information about places and how to get there is one thing, but it can get pretty frustrating when you can’t find the desired location on the app to begin with. The latest Yandex update features extensive and superior searching filters which allow you to perform searches with more finesse and precision. Once your desired location is found, you can further interact with it by saving and even downloading it. These features are available on all platforms that support Yandex.

The next step

Yandex now offers more information regarding directions, offering multiple suggestions along with public transportation schedules and other information.

Those using Yandex before the update will definitely feel the changes that have taken effect and will be pleased by how the Windows 10 friendly app has evolved.
