Google wants to use AR to make walking navigation easier in Maps

Google I/O Update: Google Maps 'For You' Section, Augmented Reality Features Announced

"The benefit of getting a match is that it helps you identify which restaurants you might like based on your unique interests and preferences, so you can spend less time planning and more time having fun". Here, users will be shown recommendations of places and businesses in their area, especially those that are brand new or are "trending" based on Google's data. If you regularly peruse the star ratings of various restaurants before you decide where to go, then you know that those ratings can only tell you so much. But at Google I/O, the company gave us a sneak peek at what is to come from Google Maps, and no matter how nonexistent your sense of direction might be, Google can help.

Maps will even track your progress against each list, adding a game-like feel.

Gmail gets Snooze and Google Pay support on iOS
In reality, at least among those newest attributes that made it to Gmail to get iOS is now on Android for just a small while. You can choose to snooze it until later that day, in the evening, or whatever date and time you choose to set for yourself.

For more effective navigation, Google is combining Google Maps' navigation features with Camera capabilities.

As detailed, a new Explore tab features everything you need to know about dining, events, and activity options in an area that you're interested in. Perhaps that will lead to your group discovering a new place that you may enjoy together. The service is due to receive some new features of its own this year. Maps will generate lists of Michelin-starred restaurants, for example, or popular brunch spots depending on your context and the time of day. Interestingly, Google does not try to base these scores on how other people like you have rated a place. Lens also can now rack up fashion searches - Google has made progress with style matching from different designers to different fabrics. With the upcoming update, you can create a shortlist of places within the app and share it with friends across any platform, so you can quickly vote and decide on a place to go. Google News will be available in 127 countries on both Android and iOS, starting today, with a global roll-out planned for sometime later this week.
