Innovations brought to Google Maps by artificial intelligence
Google Maps announced its most significant update in recent years by introducing AI-supported maps. Here are the most notable 5 features of this update:
This update provides enhanced lane information and real-time traffic data, along with improved route guidance. Nearby points of interest, accidents, and details along the route can be viewed more detailed.
Now, routes will be presented in three dimensions, allowing users to see the real view of the surroundings. This feature particularly reduces the risk of getting lost in unfamiliar areas.
Google Lens Support:
Google Maps can now recognize and tag nearby places using your camera. With this feature, users can learn more about the surrounding places.
The application offers a significant convenience for electric vehicle users. It now includes detailed information about the location, charger types, and availability of electric vehicle charging stations.
