Users can also choose to save on mobile data by taking Google Maps completely offline, the company said on Tuesday.

Android users will be able to save areas on their Google Maps for access when offline. As a bonus, they will also be able to save it onto an SD card.

To use Google Maps offline, all you have to do is save the particular area you need. Then, switching to the "wifi only" option on Google Maps will let you access the service offline.
