According to Google, the new functions give you a more realistic picture of a particular location.

After the update, you will see various lists, which should make it easier to find a good restaurant nearby, for example. We explain to you how that works.

Google Maps gets more lists

When you are on holiday it is sometimes difficult to choose where to eat in the evening, for example. Google Maps is now trying to make that a little easier, because in the new version of the app three different lists are shown. That are the trending listthe top list and the gems list. The first list shows places that have recently become more popular, among the top list you see places that consistently score well in Google.

Are you looking for less touristy places? Then you have to gems list view, because it shows locations that score well but are not yet very popular. The photos and reviews you see are selected on Google Maps with AI. This way you can see a summary of what visitors like about a particular location in one overview. Think of a famous dish from a restaurant or a popular attraction in an amusement park.

Lists rolled out in 40 cities

With the help of AI, Google Maps will soon even be able to tell you which dish is in the photo, which is useful when you are on holiday in a foreign country. The new functions in Google Maps are mainly intended to make it easier to discover locations in cities. Nothing changes for the routes in Maps, although the design of the app has been subtly adjusted. The home screen has fewer tabs and the colors are slightly brighter.

Unfortunately, the new AI functions for Google Maps are not yet available everywhere. Google first brought the update to a total of forty cities in the United States and Canada. According to Google, the update will be released later this month for both iOS and Android, so we won’t have to wait much longer for the features. It is not yet known when the features will also come to the Netherlands and Belgium, but that will probably not take long.
