  • Google I/O Update: Google Maps 'For You' Section, Augmented Reality Features Announced

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.

Additionally, Google Maps is receiving better support for group planning. While having a minimal and less intrusive experience, Assistant will allow you to navigate throughout your world verbally. Google has also admitted that it is thinking of inserting animated characters to the new feature like a fox to make it more entertaining, according to Apple Insider. Google Lens will also be incorporated into camera apps, essentially making the camera, a smart camera, capable of understanding what is front of you, such as a breed of dog, or landmark.

Finally, Maps will also make it possible for you to share what you want to do with friends. Coming later this summer, it's created to offer personalized recommendations based on a user's habits. A "Your Match" score will differentiate from the typical star ratings based on said interests. The generated list can be shared with friends for asking suggestions and enabling them to pick up so that more vote preferred options in the list by other friends could be known and decision shall be taken accordingly.

Social network says move is part of its 'efforts to help protect the integrity of elections and referendums from undue influence'. Facebook said the move was in line with the company's strategy aimed at increasing transparency during political campaigns.

When you tap on any food or drink venue you will get a number that suggests how likely you are to enjoy the place - this is called your "match". Here, users will be shown recommendations of places and businesses in their area, especially those that are brand new or are "trending" based on Google's data. Besides directions, the mode also helps identify nearby places, so you have a better feel for the neighborhood. They're using two ways to do this, including expanding their VIsual Positioning System (VPS) technology they launched with Project Tango, bringing it to all devices and a new Augmented Reality view using your camera.

Be on the lookout for these changes in the coming months.
