Google Maps is getting a new icon, and a refreshed look as it turns 15 today. Announced in 2005, Google Maps has become one of the most used services from the company, one without which over a billion users cannot imagine their daily lives.

Jen Fritzpatrick, SVP Google Maps who has been with the company more than 20 years says “It has come a long way since 2005”. She recounts how in 2005 one of the core features they worked on was adding a print button to Google Maps. Thankfully, Google Maps users no longer need to print directions given there is real-time turn-by-turn navigation on our smartphones.
