(TechTimes.com)—A few weeks after Google Maps received the Material Design makeover, Google is rolling out another update with a few minor features that users who largely rely on Maps when researching about a destination will likely find useful.

Google Maps 9.1 now allows users to view additional information on their destinations. Tapping on the pin will bring up snippets of information such as the time, local weather and a short description of the destination. For instance, PCWorld says touching the pin over the San Francisco Marriott Marquis describes the hotel as having “sophisticated rooms in a modern high-rise, plus business perks, indoor pool and penthouse lounge. 4 stars.”

It is unclear if the update has already rolled out to most users, as some report that they do not yet see the time and local weather snippet on a destination. This will most likely not be a major problem for users who are checking out a place a few minutes away from them, but the new feature will definitely be useful for travelers who use Maps to check out hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions.
