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

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.

Google Maps, like Google News, is also gaining a new "For You" feature where you'll find recommendations based on your past travel. The For You tab is created to surface information about new places that open up, or a "surprise pop-up from your favourite chef" and more using information from local experts, Google's algorithms, and trusted publishers.

We use machine learning to generate this number, based on a few factors: what we know about a business, the food and drink preferences you've selected in Google Maps, places you've been to, and whether you've rated a restaurant or added it to a list.

Google Maps is adding a "For you" section as well.

Finally, Google is also launching new tools to help you get around in Navigation.

If that wasn't enough, a new "For You" tab will let you know about all of the exciting culinary adventures taking place in your 'hood. If you're trying to follow a set of directions, you can now hold your phone up, and Google Maps will match the view from your camera to the saved Street View imagery of the world.

The company didn't say when the augmented reality features will come to the Google Maps app, but it did hint that it might even include a cute robotic fox to act as your virtual guide. Your estimated time of arrival will be taken right from your Maps screen and relayed to the person you are texting with.

These features will be rolling out worldwide, on Android and iOS, within the coming months. Another Google Maps feature called "Your Match" will suggest restaurants and other venues that are specifically catered to the end-user through the power of machine learning.
