Lets say I told you that within your daily life, Google could create an enormous number of custom maps explicitly for you?
Previously, such a perception would surely have been unbelievable: a map was just a map, and you got the same one for Delhi, whether you were seeking the India Gate or even the coffee shop around the corner. What if, instead, you actually had a map that’s unique to you, always changing to the position you desire to perform right this moment?
As anticipated, Google unveils a preview for the latest version of Google Maps which will be rolling out sometime this summer.
The updated Google Maps, a preview of which you will find is rolling out to developers from today, ensures the search giant’s mapping experience more personal. It incorporates the technology that powers Google Now directly into Google Maps experience, “so it’ll improve and up-to-date, the better that you diligently utilize it,” said Bernhard Seefeld, product management director for Google Maps.
The Maps team had three goals considering the update: setting up a separate map for every single user; combining all of Google’s mapping services – from satellite imagery to Street View to indoor photos; and making everything simpler plus much more powerful. In consequence, “we went ahead and rebuilt Google maps from scratch,” said by the Maps team.
As suggested, the search box and also its particular results are now layered on top of Google Maps. Nameless pins can be replaced with results in the search engines labeled directly on a map, with a description for top results. To acquire a quick peek into that sushi restaurant, the brand new Google Maps will allow users to quickly push inside for indoor photos as well as a 360 degree view.
Furthermore providing an exceptional experience in favor of user, Google also planned to make Maps more ideal for businesses as well as other locations. Filters also enable search results that incorporate recommendations from friends.
For now, everybody can join an invitation at maps.google.com/preview and Google will begin mailing out invites thereafter.
