Google Maps is expanding its features to assist users in discovering new places to visit through curated lists sourced from both the community and third-party providers.

When searching for a destination and swiping up, users will now encounter a new section below the image carousel. This section will showcase a variety of third-party lists, such as expert-curated restaurant recommendations, travel guides, itineraries, and restaurant guides.

Google Maps will also curate its own lists based on popular places and current trends, introducing features like the “Trending,” “Top,” and “Gems” lists. These lists aim to highlight places that have recently gained popularity, longstanding community favorites, and hidden gems within neighborhoods.
