Google is testing a new feature in Google Maps which is called "Incognito Mode". This increases privacy and doesn't store location search history. The "Incognito Mode" in Google Maps is currently being tested for Android Users.
Google Maps Incognito Mode is very similar to Google Chrome's Feature which prevents the storage of search history, visited websites and location tracking.
Google Maps 10.26 Features
This increases privacy and this isn't the only feature Google Maps 10.26 will be rolling out with. Google's App also will feature a new "Eye Free walking navigation mode" reports XDA Developers.
- The "Eyes Free" mode makes it easier to walk more and use phone less, that is to say, it reduces how often you need to look at your phone while using the app.
This mode would "add more detailed voice guidance during walking navigation".
