This feature appeared in Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2 versions.
Google Maps, one of the most used navigation applications in the world, has released a long-awaited update in its version for Android. Although iOS users have enjoyed the weather feature in Google Maps for years, now this feature is finally coming to the Android version.
This weather function in Google Maps is a very useful addition. While you are in certain places, the application becomes your best friend for navigation and keeping you informed about weather conditions in real time.
However, as mentioned in the title and despite its importance, the iOS version of Google Maps has had this feature for approximately four years, while Android users have been left too far behind in this aspect.
The reason for such a long wait is reportedly because Google changed the UI of the weather feature in the Android version of the app. additionally, the company is said to have developed a standalone weather app for Android.
