Google Maps is one of the most favorite navigation apps, because in addition to easy to use, this application is also free. But Google Maps is an app that belongs to the full-screen category, where if you minimize or exit the app you will lose visual navigation, even if you can enable audio gestures.
Actually, to overcome the problem of loss of navigation when minimizing the application can be overcome by utilizing the Picture-in-Picture feature and the good news that one of Google’s best services will soon get the new features.
Picuture-in-Picture feature itself is actually a feature that comes present on Android 8.0 Oreo, and a good news when Google developed the feature for the Google Maps application. This new feature has been applied to the Google Maps app, but keep in mind that new features will come soft-launching, so not all users get this new feature right away.
But the side-down of the presence of this new feature is to require devices that are already running Android 8.0 Oreo alone can enjoy the Picture-in-Picture feature in the Google Maps application. That way, only Pixel and Nexus devices can enjoy this new feature, because for now only Google-owned devices are already running Android 8.0 Oreo.
