Google Maps Levels Up with Generative AI

Google Maps AI


In an exciting move, Google is injecting a dose of artificial intelligence into its beloved Google Maps app, starting with a special treat for U.S.-based Local Guides. These active and passionate community members get the first taste of the early access experiment this week.

So, what’s the buzz about? Google is transforming the way you discover places. No more navigating through menus, just express what you’re looking for in plain language, and let Google’s massive language models sift through Maps’ extensive places database to fetch you tailored results.

This nifty feature, currently in a closed beta phase with the Local Guides, aims to gather insights and feedback to refine its magic before reaching a wider audience.

But that’s not all. As Google shared, imagine you’re out and about, and the weather takes an unexpected turn. Simply ask Maps for “activities for a rainy day,” and voila! Suggestions will pop up. Feeling family-oriented? Follow up with, “What about options for kids?” and discover children’s museums based on your location.

What makes this even cooler is that you can save or share these recommendations with friends, turning your spontaneous moments into memorable experiences. The feature is sky-high, promising a polished and user-friendly experience when it eventually rolls out to everyone.

So, are you ready to let AI be your guide?
