Windows Maps has been updated with a relatively small, but nonetheless handy feature for Fast ring Insiders. Now, if you spot an error on a map on either Windows 10 PC or Mobile, you can submit a correction or addition right from the Maps app itself.
Examples range from a missing road name to a city name simply being in the wrong language. With the latest Fast ring update, if you notice a similar error or issue on a map, you can tap the "Suggest Change" button to submit a correction right away. You aren't limited to what's already on the map either, as Microsoft notes that you can now add new places or businesses by adding their information directly in Windows Maps.
Given that maps are constantly in flux, this is a feature that's great to have in the hands of users — even if you only use it for correcting something like a business' hours. Generally speaking, allowing those who live near the areas on the map to make updates ends up making a better overall experience for everyone.
In any case, if you're a Fast ring Insider, you should be able to pull the update down now. Once updated, your Windows Maps app should be bumped up to version 5.1611.3191.0.
