Google has announced several new useful new features for the Google Maps app, adding relevant information that depends on what you need.
During the Google I / O keynote prior to the Android 12 announcement, Google showed an extended Live View AI mode loaded with the information you need. For example, if the booking is associated with your Google account, the technology will show you the direction of the hotel in which you are staying in the real world.
Users will be able to see their phone’s camera above a restaurant to see how busy it is, as well as show customer reviews and photos of their starting house as well. You can see the new features displayed in the tweets from the Google Maps account below.
Live View is also coming indoors, Google says, which will make it easier to find everything from toilets to ticket booths at your local train station.
Elsewhere, the Google Maps team also revealed adjustments to the traditional map interface, including more detail such as crosswalks or walking islands.
The update also highlights places you want to visit based on the time of day, or whether you are brand new to a city.
Therefore, at 8 in the morning, you can see the facilities of the open breakfast establishments and at 5 in the evening you will see the dinner places that you want to reserve. If Google Maps knows you’re in a place you’ve never been or rarely visited, some of the more well-known landmarks may appear in the map.
Google is also building on its expected busyness feature for restaurants, which have been an easy facility for those looking for a quiet place to eat outside during the epidemic.
Now Google is bringing this technology to entire areas or neighborhoods, so it’s possible to know if a landmark like Big Ben, for example, is likely to be busy and whether it might be a good idea to come back later.
All these features will be coming to the Google Maps app later this year.
