Google has released an update of its Maps for Mobile Android app boasting of two major new features – 3D interaction and offline reliability. Users can now browse maps of their surrounding area using 3D maps, and even interact with it by tilting and rotating their view by using the new compass mode.

Google lists the following features that come with this functionality:

Tilting: Drag down with two fingers to tilt the map. Tilt while zoomed in on one of the 100+ cities around the world with 3D buildings to see a skyline spring to life.

Rotating: Twist with two fingers to rotate the map. After tilting to see 3D buildings, rotate around them to gain a new perspective from any direction.

Smooth zooming: Slide two fingers together or apart, and see the map and labels continuously scale to any zoom level, stopping when your fingers stop.

Compass mode: Center the map on your location, and then tap the compass button in the top right corner. The map will flip into 3D mode and start rotating to match your perspective, while still keeping all the labels upright and readable.
