Google Maps to get updated with new Assistant, AR, and recommendation features
09 May, 2018, 01:18
The feature was ultimately made so that users can make "better decision on the go and experience the world in new ways".
To help provide for these changing needs, the Google Maps team have worked to integrate Google Maps with the smartphone camera.
In order to make this possible, GPS alone lacks the precision needed, so Google have been working on implementing a new system, referred to as VPS, or the Visual Positioning System. The For You tab is created to surface information about new places that open up, or a "surprise pop-up from your favourite chef" and more using information from local experts, Google's algorithms, and trusted publishers.
The new "For you" tab offers a customised view of trending places in areas that you choose to view.
Google has also introduced a new feature called "Your Match" which is a score that tells you how likely it is that you're going to enjoy a place you find on Google Maps. 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. Google has thought of this and has added in Group Planning tools.
Finally, the new version of Google Maps will make it easier to make plans with friends to go out. Besides directions, the mode also helps identify nearby places, so you have a better feel for the neighborhood.
The Google I/O keynote contained a number of interesting new and improved technologies, such as new features for the Google Assistant. 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.
Instead of a top-down map, users will be able to see the street in front of them through the camera, with an AR overlay arrow pointing the direction and distance.
Both of these new features will be available on Android and iOS later this year.
