Many malls in India are evolving from standard shopping destinations to fully equipped entertainment hubs packed with shops, restaurants, theaters and even gaming zones. Next time you’re trying to meet a friend for coffee or find the movie theaters in an unfamiliar shopping mall, Google Maps can lend a little help.
Starting today, you can access Indoor Google Maps for 75 popular indoor venues across 22 cities in India. Indoor Google Maps are like having an indoor directory in the palm of your hand — helping you more easily work out how to get to where you want to go, without having to find a freestanding directory or mall assistant first. Popular venues like Ambience Mall in Gurgaon and Select City Walk in Delhi now have their floor plans uploaded to Google Maps. The maps automatically appear when you zoom in on a location, and then fade away when the map is zoomed out.
