Have you ever been in a new place and wondered where you should eat or what you should do? Google is doing something to help with this. This week they are releasing an update to the Maps app for Android and iOS that adds an Explore button; essentially letting you see what is close by and can even change what distance it will show you! Another cool feature is that you see how the weather will affect things!
Now, whenever you want to discover places in your area, simply tap the new Explore button at the bottom right corner of your map to get a quick look at what’s nearby (where available). With Explore as your guide, you’ll see different places and activities that adapt to each area and moment throughout your day. This also works when you’re browsing other neighborhoods and cities on the map so you can plan your day’s outing or daydream about your next vacation.
