  • Google has removed a few tabs from the Google Maps bottom bar.
  • The new bottom bar now has three tabs: Explore, You, and Contribute.
  • The You tab combines the old Go, Saved, and Updates tabs.

Google is making a small change to Google Maps that should help clean up the home screen a bit. It appears that change is now slowly starting to roll out to Android users.

During the Material You session at Google I/O this week, the tech giant debuted a new, simplified design for Google Maps. Specifically, the company reduced the number of tabs that appear in the bottom bar.
