A new Match Score feature combines the info Google's collected about business along with your ratings of similar businesses to produce more targeted recommendations.

Google is adding some massive new features to Google Maps, the biggest being the addition of augmented reality directions to help with walking directions.

A new For You tab will allow you to stay on top of the latest happenings in the areas you're into.

You will also be able to "cut and paste" the text to add to your own documents, just by holding your phone's camera up to the writing. Selecting a restaurant, meanwhile, will provide you with a "match", a score-out-of-one-hundred that tells you how likely you are to enjoy it.

Google Maps, like Google News, is also gaining a new "For You" feature where you'll find recommendations based on your past travel.

Google has announced the new features that are coming to its Maps app this year. So if you're exhausted of sorting through all those 4-star options, soon you can just go with your machine-based match. 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. The generated list can be shared with friends for asking suggestions and enabling them to pick up so that more vote preferred options in the list by other friends could be known and decision shall be taken accordingly. Street View can label things in the real world using your camera, and show you an overlay to let you know which way to go.

The new features will be rolling out to both Android and iOS users in the near future, alongside a feature that'll punch you in the face if you even think about loading Yelp.
