Google Maps Gets Split Screen View UI on Android

Google Maps for Android improves the Street View experience by adding a split-screen mode.

The new split view UI launches automatically when you open Street View after dropping a map pin.  The Google Maps’ screen splits in half, with the upper half of the screen occupied by the Street View interface and the corresponding map shown in the bottom half. The Street View path is indicated in blue on the map, and there’s a Telegram logo-like indicator that shows your current position. Users can also open the Street View mode in full screen and return to the split-screen with a simple tap.

The feature Street View split-screen is widely rolled out through a server-side update on recent versions of Google Maps.
