| |

Microsoft released a Windows 10 blog post today showing off how Ink can be used in conjunction with the Windows Maps application. Known for its voice navigation and turn-by-turn directions similar to Google Maps, this Microsoft version comes with the ability to use Surface Pen to improve the app's experience.

Drawing with Ink on Windows Maps includes:

  • Draw a line between two points for directions
  • Save marks and add notes to your map
  • Trace a route to calculate distance
  • Use a ruler to plot multiple locations

Windows Maps is for free on the Windows Store so you can download and try out these features today.
