Mapillary 2.0

The Mapillary team is excited to introduce the all-new Mapillary Android app - a project we’ve been calling Mapillary 2.0 internally as a nod to the major upgrade in both user experience and underlying code.

This overhaul includes a complete visual refresh aimed at improving the ease of use of the app. Here are some of the highlights:

  • All new look and feel across the app
  • New homepage with quick access to your captures
  • Action cards to let you know when your captures are ready to upload or processing
  • Upload progress bar to monitor upload status
  • Ability to save your login and password with autofill
  • App dark and light themes

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎

This major release builds on features we’ve been rolling out over the past year and which you may have noticed coming online:

  • Automatic Uploading - so your captures can be uploaded automatically when you connect to Wi-Fi, even without opening the Mapillary app
  • Picture-in-picture support - keep capturing with Mapillary while using another app like Google Maps for navigation
  • Ability to block addresses - so you don’t have to worry about accidentally uploading imagery of your garage 🙂
  • Faster uploads thanks to better image compression and sampling

What comes next?

We are excited to share this milestone with you, and we have a backlog of exciting features coming your way throughout 2024. Here’s what you can look forward to next on Android:

  • Support for wide-angle cameras
  • Ability to view the images you capture outside of the Mapillary app
  • Updates to the camera to show distance captured and battery life

We invite you to give the app a fresh spin, and please let us know your feedback in the forum or by leaving a review on the Play Store (we appreciate it!). iOS users stay tuned: these updates and more are coming to iOS soon.

Thank you as always for being a part of the Mapillary community and keeping your feature suggestions and bug reports coming. They help us build a better Mapillary for everyone.
