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

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. | The Latest: Google adding augmented reality feature to Maps

Finally, Maps will also make it possible for you to share what you want to do with friends. Since launch, Google has mapped over 220 countries and territories and is helping more than 1 billion Maps users.

It will contain top trending lists like the Foodie List to show you where the tastemakers are eating, and help you find new restaurants based on info from local experts, Google's algorithms, and trusted publishers. Another new upcoming feature will rate a location based on the previous places a user entered into Maps, and give it a score out of 100.

To offer personal recommendations, Google created a "Your Match" score that users machine learning to combine what Google knows about hundreds of millions of places with the information a user has added - such as restaurants a user has rated and cuisines they like. Tapping the score brings up a detailed view explaining where the number came from-reasons can include your dining preferences, other places you've visited, and ratings you've given on Maps.

Google is also trying to make group planning easier by letting you pick, say, one of two places and offering it up to a vote. Besides directions, the mode also helps identify nearby places, so you have a better feel for the neighborhood. 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. VPS will help Maps to figure out where you are, what direction you're now pointed in and then help you get where you need to go. Street View can label things in the real world using your camera, and show you an overlay to let you know which way to go. A step above GPS, VPS effectively lays Maps' navigation features over what the user sees in the Camera app.

The new features will be rolling out to both Android and iOS users in the near future, alongside a feature that'll punch you in the face if you even think about loading Yelp.
