In a move to tackle sporadic and bad internet connectivity in India, Google India has announced that Google Maps will work offline with added features like turn-by-turn voice navigation and destination search.

However, before the user starts using the offline navigation and other such features they will have to download the specific area and view it later when there is no internet connection. As soon as the user’s device finds an internet connection it will switch back online so they can access the full version of maps.
