Google Maps is adding personalised match score for places and more

More and more news keeps coming from Google I/O, and this time, the company is showing off its vision of how walking navigation could be made easier with the aid of Augmented Reality.

At its 2018 I/O conference, Google showcased the app's new feature, highlighting how it can be a big improvement over the current navigation guide. The company collects so much data from users that they are able to make intelligent predictions about various things.

Coming to what all changes Google has added to Google Maps.

Additionally, AR enhancements will eventually make their way into other areas of the Google Maps app, such as by displaying a live camera view of storefronts or popular destinations. Many consumers never touch those attributes, however, it sounds.

In 1996, he pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor between 13 and 15 years old, the records show. Dwyer said investigators are carefully sifting through the old case files so they can finally solve the missing person cases.

And of course, there will be a great potential for Artificial Intelligence implementation in Google Maps to show all the options that suit your preferences. You will soon find a new tab in Google Maps called "For You" that is created to tell you what you need to know about the places you care about.

With the redesigned Explore tab in Google Maps, users can now find multiple information at one place. There will be algorithmically designed "Foodie List" and "Trending this week" lists to show you places you might visit. It will now tell you everything new and interesting nearby. This will be based on your previous reviews and likes at the locations you have previously visited, like restaurants or recreation center. As it knows a lot about you, it knows what you might like. Tap on any choice, and the app will give you a "match" rating-the percentage likelihood you'll enjoy the experience. This is done with the help of machine learning which is based on factors such as what Google knows about a business, food/beverage preferences selected in Google Maps, places a user has been to, and whether they've rated a restaurant or added to a list.

The next important new feature of the new program is set planning.
