Google announced that it is expanding its indoor maps feature to France. Google has included over 50 French venues in the offering.

"Now, even if you’re visiting one of these large, well-trafficked places for the first time, you can navigate your way around like a pro," says Google Maps Product Manager Cedric Dupont in a blog post. "And with the accurate My Location feature that works indoors, you can easily figure out if you’re close to the shop you’re looking for, the escalator that will get you to the right gate, or even the nearest ATM or restroom."

Locations with indoor maps include shopping malls, retailers, airports and museums. The maps can be accessed via Google Maps for Android.

"We even partnered with super markets such as Carrefour so that you can look for items like the 'dairy' aisle and figure out the fastest way to the milk products to save time when shopping," notes Dupont.
