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

"Here's how it could-will look like", Google VP Aparna Chennapragada told the I/O crowd when unveiling a sample interface that combines Google Maps' 2D interface with the view from your smartphone's camera lens.

At the Google I/O developer conference on Tuesday, Google unveiled a number of updates to Google Maps, offering a richer and more personal experience for users.

This feature is expected to roll out "in the next few weeks".

Besides directions, the mode also helps identify nearby places, so you have a better feel for the neighborhood.

Trump, Pence to skip Jerusalem embassy opening
Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and announced the embassy relocation on December 6. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish People and now, the world will begin to recognize this.

Meanwhile, Google Maps is adding new augmented reality features. The app which is actually meant for giving directions to its users, now, has an added responsibility to assist them in discovering the needed places like restaurants, malls, theatres etc. Street View can label things in the real world using your camera, and show you an overlay to let you know which way to go. Google Maps say to go South on High Street, but how do you know which way is South, and if it is an unfamiliar location, how do you know which one is High Street?

The For You, You Match and Group Planning tools are coming to Maps on Android and iOS later this summer, but Google hasn't yet announced when their AR and VPS navigation features are coming, but we're hoping they'll be coming soon.

Instagram to Soon Allow Direct Shopping and Payments Inside the App
