Let's check out today's update's change-log:
Offline Maps: Google added cool new offline maps feature in its Android maps app. Since when Google added an offline navigation and search feature into their Maps app many users were facing a problem. Many users claimed that offline navigation an search feature ignore preloaded maps and use cellular data if it's available. That means offline version is only useful for those who don't have internet access on their Android phone.
Surprisingly, Google has fixed that issue in today's update This new update will store offline Maps data into the SD cards. So App will not use your cellular data while using offline maps and navigation. They named this new feature to "WIFI Only", which define that offline maps are still downloaded and updated over Wi-Fi only. This new feature will also save your battery while using Maps app.

Today's update help you more into this. Google added new area traffic notifications feature in today's update. This new feature will notify you with the real-time traffic conditions in your area. Notification will come with this message "The Coast is clear" when there is no traffic on the route. You can also turn this option off while you don't want to get any notifications for the same.
Remove locations you've never been to from the Contribute screen: It's most important feature in today's update. This feature will help you to remove the places which you have never visited, but Maps think you have. This feature will help you to clean up your list of locations from your Maps App.
