Google Maps 'For You' Section, Augmented Reality Features Announced

Google Maps 'For You' Section, Augmented Reality Features Announced

The most interesting new feature for the mapping app is an augmented reality Street View mode that helps users follow directions in real time.

Tapping on a particular venue will also display your "match" that is both a number ranking and explanation on how likely you are to enjoy the food or drink establishment.

For more effective navigation, Google is combining Google Maps' navigation features with Camera capabilities. "You can rate places on Google Maps, which helps us determine which restaurants you like so we can improve your match for similar places moving forward". It will keep all the core features of Maps but will be getting lots of new features to make it exciting.

Deciding on a new place to visit with friends and family is made easier with the help of a shareable list of hotels that people can vote on.

While on stage at I/O, Google also debuted a new navigation system that uses Street View and AR to guide you to your destination. The app which is actually meant for giving directions to its users, now, has an added responsibility to assist them in discovering the needed places like restaurants, malls, theatres etc. With this, Google Maps will recommend a spot for you to check out, with an associated match percentage with it. Let's say you love hot dogs.
