Google Maps gets personalised recommendation features and a neat Augmented Reality view

The feature was ultimately made so that users can make "better decision on the go and experience the world in new ways".

Subscriptions to premium news outlets can now easily be done through Google News, without the need of manually putting in credit card and other information by the end-user, if so desired.

The first is an entirely new tab within the Google Maps app called For You. Google Maps has a solution for you.

Google revealed For You at its I/O 2018 developer conference with an example that showed a recommendation for a new cafe alongside reviews and a news link related to the cafe's opening. You'll see the reasoning behind each number, based on factors such as what Google knows about the business, your food and drink preferences (which you've previously selected in Maps), the places you've been to, and whether you've rated a restaurant or added it to a list. The feature basically predicts the new restaurants that users will likely prefer based on data about the places they've visited before and frequented in the past.

April's KOD , his fifth album, meditates on addiction and despair with another blast of his social criticism and conspiracy. The " KOD " Tour starts August 9 in Miami, Fla., and includes two stops in Canada before wrapping in Boston Oct. 10.

Group Planning: Add places to shareable lists, which friends and family can also add to and vote on. Besides directions, the mode also helps identify nearby places, so you have a better feel for the neighborhood.

Google Maps is also getting augmented reality support that will mix the traditional Street View interface of the mapping service with a live camera view. A user can see the names of places around them, as well as street names and directions, right in front of them. Google has also been toying with a new animated "Guide" to help you get you where you're going. Once finalised, Google Maps already has functionality to let you make a reservation as well as book a cab ride to the venue.

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.
