Google will soon introduce several new features into Google Maps, including Immersive View, Neighborhood Vibe, Search with Live View, and the development of energy-efficient routes.
According to blog developers, they hope that the update "inspires users to plan adventures." For example, if a person goes to a new part of the city, the function of "Neighborhood Vibe" will help to learn more about the area by studying users' feedback. "To make people feel the atmosphere of the area, we've joined the AI with the knowledge of Google Maps users, who add more than 20 million materials to the map every day," the developers report.
In the coming months, the function will appear on all of Android and iOS smartphones.
Google is also promoting the immersive view of Google Maps. The update has already been called "the future of navigation and maps." You can change the time of the day, and you can fly on a map like in a game and even enter buildings. First, the regime will be available in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Tokyo. In the long run, the number of cities will increase. Today, there will also be more than 250 realistic aerial photos of world landmarks on the platform.
It is generally accepted that this is an effective way to test how the sights look alive and what surrounds them, but, as Gizmodo writes, the service competes with the function added to Apple Maps last year.
