As part of its recent updates, Google has added some new features to Google Maps in order to make it easier for users to explore their city. The idea behind these features was to make Maps more assistive in personal to better help users figure out what they want to eat, drink and do anything no matter where they are in the world. These features were initially released to a small number of users but Google has now confirmed that they’re available to all users.
According to the company, the Explore tab in Maps has been redesigned to provide quick recommendations for restaurants, bars and cafes in any area that the user is interested in. They can get recommendations in their city or anywhere they’re planning a trip.
Also, as the name suggests, the new For You tab displays stuff that is happening around your locality, office, or a city you frequent. It tells whether a new restaurant or cafe has recently opened in an area you may want to visit.
These features are now live in Google Maps for iOS and Android for users across the globe.
