Google has updated their Maps web app with the capability to check the weather anywhere using The Weather Channel’s service. The new weather layer can be found in the upper right hand corner of Google Maps near the traffic and satellite view selections. TWC will provide you with anything from current conditions and hourly forecasts to a 10-day forecast and cloud options.
Maps’ new weather layer seems to be great at first glance, however, the interface itself has a gallery of terribly bland icons for conditions. It’s the beginning of something new, though, so hopefully things will change up a little bit to match the rest of the Maps interface.
Check after the break for a video by Google explaining their new feature addition. (more…)
