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

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. Once a decision is made, reservations and even rides can be booked via Google Maps.

Google is updating Maps with a couple of new features that it hopes will encourage users to get out of the house and try new things. Google has also been experimenting with the idea of a guide in the augmented reality environment, which users would then follow to get to a particular location. Users will also be able to long-press on a location to create a list that can be shared with others. 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. "There will also be lists that show top-ranked options; for example, a "Foodie List" will include recommendations for trending restaurants based on local experts, Maps" own algorithms, and Google's trusted publishers.

In a demo at Google's I/O developer conference today (May 8), Google executives show how a phone's camera can use AR features to augment directions.

Google Maps will now combine Street View and data from Maps using a smartphone's camera for easier and better navigation. She used that prompt to unveil a Google initiative dubbed the visual positioning system (VPS), which can "estimate precise positioning and orientation" based on images gathered by a user's smartphone. Besides directions, the mode also helps identify nearby places, so you have a better feel for the neighborhood. However, Google did not say when all of these things will come to its mapping service.
