Google has announced that it is updating Google Maps with a range of new features. This includes a new neighborhood vibe feature that will let you get a feel for a neighborhood before you visit.
There is also the ability to explore more than 250 landmarks in aerial view and you will also be able to explore nearby places in Live View.
Google is also planning to expand its new routing feature which uses more environmentally friendly routes to third-party developers.
If you’re visiting a new neighborhood, it can be hard to figure out what’s worth exploring, what’s new, and what the local gems are. Soon, with our new neighborhood vibe feature, you’ll be able to select a neighborhood and see the most popular spots come to life thanks to helpful photos and information from the Google Maps community right on the map. Say you’re on a trip to Paris — you can quickly know if a neighborhood is artsy or has an exciting food scene so you can make an informed decision on how to spend your time.
