Google Maps teases impressive augmented reality navigation interface ... again

Who doesn't know which direction you're facing when the tool says "turn south?" If you've ever wandered around in circles trying to figure out which direction your little blue dot was moving in the Maps app, this is for you. And if you want your score to improve, you'll need to train the system by rating more places and adding them to your lists. When Google Maps finds interesting updates in that area - maybe a restaurant that's trending or a new coffee shop that opens - it'll tell you about that in your feed.

Through the power of AI, google will suss out the best of the best and give users the most meaningful and most full perspective through a newly revamped Google News feature.

The first new feature that's heading to Google Maps this summer is the "For You" section. The feature was ultimately made so that users can make "better decision on the go and experience the world in new ways".

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. Maps will generate lists of Michelin-starred restaurants, for example, or popular brunch spots depending on your context and the time of day. For this, Explore tab has been provided to look at the details regarding the place of search in the form of a list based on the most searched or relevant ones. Based on the demo I saw, the team actually did a really nice job with this. It can also incorporate information on business and attractions along your route, and Google's even experimenting with the idea of animated AR guides users can just follow to their destination.

New Google Lens features will be implemented on devices from 11 Android OEMs, including the LG G7 ThinQ, in just weeks. For now, all of these new features will only come to the app, not the web.
