Google Maps' new 'For you' tab introduces personal recommendations, AR camera features

Google Maps will be able to update faster and more accurately, thanks to having access directly from satellite feeds and camera archives, allowing more rural places and places that have changing infrastructure to be updated faster.

The "For you" tab will make suggestions about places to visit based on information Google has about you, and you can "follow" suggestions to reference them later. 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. 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. Lens also can now rack up fashion searches - Google has made progress with style matching from different designers to different fabrics. Among the things the technology giant first showcased at the event are the new features that are coming to the Google Maps app this year. Google has also been toying with a new animated "Guide" to help you get you where you're going. 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.

Adderall maker Shire agrees £46bn takeover by Takeda

Cleverly, the phone knows exactly which way you are facing by visually scanning your surroundings and matching many points of reference with those stored in its database. Who doesn't know which direction you're facing when the tool says "turn south?" But now you will see new trending lists, which includes things like the Foodie List, a compilation of locations that have been rated well by local experts and trusted publishers. In doing so, it helps you figure out which way you should go.

These features should begin rolling out globally on both Android and iOS in the coming months. Among the key features will be a personalized score indicating how much Google thinks you'll enjoy a restaurant or bar (at least on the surface, comparable to Netflix's percentage telling you how much you might like a movie).
