This is what the new Google Maps is set to look like

Changes could be afoot as early as next week…

GOOGLE SEEMS TO be gearing up to release a completely new user interface for Google Maps on the Web, according to screenshots on Google Operating System, a blog that reports on Google news.

The update will strip out the sidebar, which lists businesses that match your search. Instead, everything will be displayed directly on the map.

A new feature will let you limit local search results to places with the top reviews or those recommended by friends in your Google+ circles.

Other visual changes include new icons, text styles, and the colors of the map itself.

We’re expecting Google to announce the change next week at Google I/O, its annual developers conference in San Francisco.

Here’s what the new Google Maps could look like:
