Google Maps has become, update after update, on the application of maps and navigation GPS we have access to in Android. The maps of Spain work great, both on highways as on local and business.
However, there was a choice that I still had much to improve, and we have all been waiting years to change. We speak of the voice, an instrument essential in the experience of Google Maps that takes you from your beginning to sound very robotic. Google have already decided to put an end to this.

Google has not specified how long it takes for this feature to arrive users of Google Maps, indicating only that it will arrive in an update. It is assumed that such an update is imminent, so that it is possible that in the next few hours we can enjoy a voice much more natural. In these moments we have updated the application to the latest version and continue with the voice old, so it will be a matter of time.
Now the important question is whether this great improvement will end up receiving it with open arms or if we finally end up entering a nostalgia for retrieve the old robotic voice that takes many years for us.
