Finally, Maps will also make it possible for you to share what you want to do with friends.

Subscriptions to premium news outlets can now easily be done through Google News, without the need of manually putting in credit card and other information by the end-user, if so desired. The For You tab is created to surface information about new places that open up, or a "surprise pop-up from your favourite chef" and more using information from local experts, Google's algorithms, and trusted publishers.

Small businesses will also be getting access to tools on Google Maps, making them more accessible to customer calls or to edit operating hours on the fly.

For more effective navigation, Google is combining Google Maps' navigation features with Camera capabilities.

Places will have an automatic "match" score that shows Google's best guess as to how much you'll enjoy them as a percentage.

The new "For you" tab offers a customised view of trending places in areas that you choose to view. Once everyone has helped compile a list of places to visit, the entire group can then vote in real time to find everyones favourite place.

In a demo at Google's I/O developer conference today (May 8), Google executives show how a phone's camera can use AR features to augment directions. Instead you'll get curated lists of what's good based on the area or neighborhood you're looking up. 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.

The mission for Google Maps for the past several years has been to help people get around in their environments. The company also did not divulge if all new features are coming to both Android and iOS, but it's safe to assume that they are heading to the app for iPhones and iPads due to the advanced augmented reality technologies of Apple's devices.
