World most popular Mobile Map application Google Maps recently launched new version with the couple of exciting new features, bit similar to Foursquare.

The New Google Maps version 5.2 for Android Smartphones enables  Share Check-in with your friends connected with Latitude and also share or publish your position in your Google profile as well as Twitter. It also integrated with the a variety of locations corresponding roughly to where you were located and whats nearby you.

The improved Google Maps for Android feature ‘pings’ for Latitude, Hotpot Tweets and enhanced search results.

Previously, Google Maps for Mobile, location enabled sharing recommendations with Hotpot friends or connected network only. With the V5.2. one can post their ratings and reviews of places like shops, cafes and restaurants directly to their Twitter accounts from their Android-powered smartphone. This can be done by simply choosing the ‘Post review to Twitter’ option from the rating widget.

Instead of texting or calling close by Latitude friends when they are spotted on the Google Map, users can now swiftly ‘ping’ them. The Latitude ping feature will send a notification to the concerned person’s Android mobile device, asking them to check in at a particular place. This ‘ping’ attribute requires both friends to use version 5.2 of the app.

To start posting Hotpot ratings to Twitter and pinging Latitude friends, just download Google Maps 5.2 from Android Market (on Android OS 1.6+ devices). Please keep in mind that both Latitude friends need version 5.2 in order to use the new “ping” feature
