Google has announced support for a new Plus codes feature for its Maps service, along with the addition of six more Indic languages for voice navigation. The company has also added more features to the app such as 'Smart Address search', 'Add an Address' and as mentioned above, new 'Plus Codes'. Google says that Plus codes are an open source solution that works by combining local codes plus area in a ‘6-character + City’ format. It can be generated and used by anyone with Google Maps on a smartphone or PC, and it can also be searched on Google for displaying a location instantly. The company says it can be used for a range of reasons like “communicating the venue of a temporary event, guiding emergency services to afflicted locations, and providing an identifiable location for complicated addresses.” The Plus code is not available for Maps Go and iOS, and the company said that the feature was available for on desktops from some time now.
