Google Maps will soon give you better recommendations

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

Are you the kind of person that gets lost, even when using Google Maps?

Back to Google Maps and a new "For You" tab will attune business selections based on your interests.

Not everyone has a flawless sense of direction and tired travelers can save themselves a few extra steps by using the overlay to get off on the right foot, and stay headed in the right direction.




There's also a new shortlist feature coming to allow users the ability to offer up multiple locations with their friends. Google said the dedicated "For You" tab will present information about new restaurants opening nearby, trending spots and many more based on the places the users have rated and visited, MacRumors has learned. Once finalised, Google Maps already has functionality to let you make a reservation as well as book a cab ride to the venue.

Google News Initiative, a recently launched venture that aims to help grow and innovative the world of journalism and news on a global scale. Among the key features will be a personalized score indicating how much Google thinks you'll enjoy a restaurant or bar (at least on the surface, comparable to Netflix's percentage telling you how much you might like a movie). "Your matches change as your own tastes and preferences evolve over time - it's like your own expert sidekick, helping you quickly assess your options and confidently make a decision". Lastly, users will be able to talk to Google Maps while in navigation mode.

A shortlist feature aims to make it easier to select places to eat or hang out and have your friends vote on their choice, which will hopefully eliminate a lot of the back-and-forth now going on in your messaging app. 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 Lens uses both on-device intelligence, and also cloud TPUs in order to do this, as it needs to identify billions of words, phrases, places, and things in a split second.
