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

Google revealed For You at its I/O 2018 developer conference with an example that showed a recommendation for a new cafe alongside reviews and a news link related to the cafe's opening. This new part of Google Maps will learn from your personal preferences and tell you about what's new in your neighborhood (or other neighborhoods you are watching).

The Google I/O keynote contained a number of interesting new and improved technologies, such as new features for the Google Assistant. Lastly, users will be able to talk to Google Maps while in navigation mode.

The new "For you" tab is the best way to stay on top of the latest and greatest happening in the areas you're into. The platform is getting some new features focused on highlighting places and activities Google's algorithms think you'll like, including a new "For you" tab that's an automatically-populated list of spots you might want to check out. At Google I/O, they've outlined the next new features for Google Maps making them smarter and more detailed.

The feature is simple: once you've set your destination in maps, you open your camera and point it in the direction you're facing and Google's machine learning magic will toss up some arrows to let you know which way to start walking. You can share a place or business with friends, and everyone you share it with can vote on whether to go there or not, all through Google Maps.

It was also announced that Google Lens will be integrated into the Camera application on future Android Phones and that it will be able to read words when the phone is held up to them.

Google News Initiative, a recently launched venture that aims to help grow and innovative the world of journalism and news on a global scale. Google has also been toying with a new animated "Guide" to help you get you where you're going.

Have you ever had to walk in about twelve different directions to figure out which way Google Maps needed you to go?
