Google Maps Get Explore Tab To Act As Guide To Users

Google Maps Get Explore Tab To Act As Guide To Users

Google today announced a new version of Google Maps that will launch later this summer.

To help provide for these changing needs, the Google Maps team have worked to integrate Google Maps with the smartphone camera.

Google Lens is also getting a series of new features such as smart text selection, style match, and real-time results. When you're ready to send it off to your friends and family members, recipients can either vote on their favorites or add more choices to the mix.

Google is going to make fumbling for directions a thing of the past.

Google Maps is adding a "For you" section as well.

Google Maps is adding new Explore and For You sections, more

When you tap on any food or drink venue you will get a number that suggests how likely you are to enjoy the place - this is called your "match".

The new AR feature uses Google's current Street View and Maps data to give you a live feed from your phone's camera to overlay walking directions on top of the real world. As Lin told me, the Foodie List is based on an anonymized cohort analysis that looks at where people who go out a lot gather. You can choose to follow neighborhoods and dining spots you want to try so you'll always have an idea for your next outing. The system will leverage what it already knows about you, where you've been before and whether you've made ratings to places previously. Machine learning will be used to calculate the score, based on information about the business, your food and drink preferences, places you've been, and previous ratings you've given. Based on the demo I saw, the team actually did a really nice job with this. You can long press a result on a search query to save it in a Shortlist and then share that list with your friends. When you decided one place to visit, use Maps to book a reservation.

Google Maps keeps growing up. For now, all of these new features will only come to the app, not the web.

Google Maps received quite a bit of love at this year's Google I/O, with numerous new features announced said to come a little later this year.
