Road width and rounded corners are more clearer, while crosswalks and pedestrian islands and now marked.

Greenery near a street is also shown, while parks also now have more detail and users can clearly see how wide a path is.

When Google announced these changes last summer they said it would help users get around more safely and efficiently.

The search engine giant said: “While seeing natural features can help you get a feel for an area, sometimes you need more information to get around safely and efficiently.

“Soon, you’ll be able to see highly detailed street information that shows the accurate shape and width of a road to scale.

“You can also see exactly where sidewalks, crosswalks, and pedestrian islands are located–crucial information if you have accessibility needs, like wheelchair or stroller requirements.
