The Saved tab is to see the locations you have saved. The Contribute is for those who would like to continue on maps by leaving feedback, photos, and review. Updates tan is a feed page for discovering new locations in your area.
Along with App redesign, the company has also announced a new logo. Maps logo is a pin with all colors taken from Google’s logo. This Pin was also present in the previous logo but was red.
