Google Maps Update Solves Gesture Navigation Issue

The new Maps UI has eliminated the side menu. Now when a user will swipe from right to left, this action will no longer bring up the side menu. This is the time where gesture navigation on Android 10 becomes live.

The reason behind it is that the side menu accidentally triggers the “back” gesture on the latest android version. Due to this, the three-bar hamburger menu no longer appears on the left side of the search bar.

When you will update your Google Maps to new UI, you can find the settings and other option by tapping on the avatar. These are the settings that were previously present on the side menu. Upon clicking on the Avatar, a box will open that will allow you to switch the account linked to the app. It will allow you to view the app’s settings and enable incognito mode.

The latest version of Google Maps app is 10.31.2 however there is no assurity that you will get UI when you update the app. You will have to wait till this server-side update reaches you.
