Pegman Google MapsArtem Russakovskii was one of the first to notice a new icon on the bottom right of the Google Maps Android app and posted about it on Google+.

The new features include the ability to view search results on the map or in a list and easily switch between them and search for places you’ve reviewed or saved using the “Your places” filter.

Here are some screen shots of the new interfaces:
