Google Maps launches its indoor mapping technology for Android mobile devices.

Google 6.0 maps gives users directions inside 18 airports, several malls and some big stores like Macy's, IKEA, and Home Depot.

The technology, similar to its outside mapping, uses a little blue dot that moves with you showing where you are and directing you where you want to go.

It's even able to know what floor you're on.

Right now the launch is limited, but company officials say they hope to offer the technology for all indoor spaces.
