Google Maps Indoor maps of selected shopping malls

Google maps recently got updated with indoor maps of some shopping malls in Singapore (for Android only). Here's a quick guide on how to use it and troubleshoot if it doesn't work on your Android device.

How to use the indoor maps feature?
1.) Zoom into the shopping mall, you will see the indoor map appearing if the shopping mall has  the feature enabled in Goolge Maps
2.) A straight tap listing the floors of the shopping mall will appear on the right side of the screen
3.) Tap on the different floors to see the locations of the shops on  the selected floor

1.)    Go to settings> Applications
2.)    Look for “Maps”
3.)    Click “Clear Data”
4.)    Then click “Force Stop”
5.)    Launch Google Maps
