Google Map Revamps Its Course with Community Update Feature
Aim: Improved Recommendations with Personalization
Goggle Map has become the main recluse to seeking the best places to visit and restaurants to order from in the local area. Google is all set to uncover the power of community recommendations and lend it a more impactful turn.
Google Map Pilot feature, announced last year, assisted the people in finding local guide recommendations. It proved extremely useful for people traveling to a new city. The user can utilize this feature for following the top guides, and Google shows suggestions accordingly. Visitors can even rate the places they visit based on their experience and discover new locations.
In this way, Google Maps has been continuously evolving to improve user experience with local guides, lists, reviews, and images.
