The 10 Biggest Product And Services Enhancements From Google I/O 2018
Google delighted the crowd of 7,000 during its opening keynote Tuesday when it demonstrated its newest feature coming to Google Maps that will solve one of the biggest user gripes -- not knowing which direction to start moving toward. Google Maps is being integrating with Google Lens so users can point their phones at the street and a StreetView overlay will pop up, pointing the user in the right direction. The maps layout will remain at the bottom of the screen for reference. Google did not give a release date for this update, however.
Google Maps is also being bolstered by machine learning. The app will now include a "For You" tab that will offer a rundown of new places and personal recommendations for users on places such as new restaurants to try.
