Google Maps is one of the most popular Google applications and services due to its usefulness and functions that really help the user. In addition to a navigation tool, the app already recommends, for example, the best restaurants in the area.
With new functions constantly arriving at this service, we will have new functions and granular controls to personalize the application and get more out of it. Now, we look at the future of Google Maps and the news it has in store.
There are amazing features on the way to Google Maps
The latest addition to Google Maps gradually is the addition of details and precise details about a given street or route of circulation. Now with information on pedestrian lanes, more information on roundabouts and more.
In the near future, Google Maps will recognize and tell you when there is, for example, a flight of stairs that you can use as a shortcut on walking routes. It will also show you reserved tours for pedestrians and bicycle lanes, for example.
In practice, the user will have a new layer of unprecedented details to facilitate navigation. This will be particularly noticeable in navigation in cities and some small towns, whether for a car trip or for walking.
Details that will improve Google Maps
As Google highlights it, on its help page, when making zoom-in in a place or city, we will see the following details:
- Scaled road widths and accurately measured
- Routes and paths in urban parks and leisure areas
- Pedestrian paths
- Pedestrian crossing points – aerial or underground
- Pedestrian safety bays at crosswalks
So far this new range of information is only available in four cities – London, New York, San Francisco and Tokyo – with US technology promising a gradual expansion to more cities.
Google highlights the importance of these new details for pedestrians and people with reduced mobility by providing more navigation and circulation guides for those who walk in large cities.
