With the new update comes a new colour scheme and icons to help users quickly identify places of interest, and allows users to focus on specific categories; taking away from the gamut of information normally presented on Maps. Gas stations will now appear more prominently during navigation, as will train stations on transit maps.

For instance, the color Google has given for food and drink restaurants is orange. Shopping POI's will now be blue, Entertainment and Leisure POI's will be a teal color, Health POI's (like hospitals) will be a red/pink color.

Over the next few weeks, these changes will be rolled out to all Google products that incorporate Google Maps, including the Assistant, Search, Earth, and Android Auto. Eventually, the changes will also migrate to sites that embed Google Maps APIs.

Google Maps will highlight information that's relevant to the mode of transport being used. With this new design, Google Maps will be even further ahead of Apple in terms of data, features and usability.
