Google Maps now lets you 'follow' your favorite places to find out about their offers


Google does not stop adding new features and news to one of its most popular and used services: its Maps . After knowing the function or tab “For you” (“For you”), we now learn that another new personalized service is introduced that seeks you to be aware of everything that happens in your favorite places … even when they are on sale.

We speak of “Follow” or “Follow”, a new button that you will find inside the section for you and that will be in charge of not losing track of the places that you like. As explained by Google itself: “We made two updates to make it even easier for you to keep up with the places that interest you […]”. That’s how it works.

The new “Follow” feature is still coming to the phones, but it will be a matter of weeks before it starts to expand, reaching all those users in countries where “For you” is already available – as for the rest, in 9to5google they indicate that It will also be available “soon”.

As we say, visually what you will see is a button under the address of the place (either restaurant, clothing store, hairdresser, etc.) in which it says ” Follow “. By giving it you will be making sure that Google Maps notifies you about news related to that establishment as well as offers and discounts that are launched in it – evidently, the site has an important job of updating your information so that it reaches its followers. weather. All those who want to be part of this new option within the “showcase” of Google Maps will have to contact the firm to have this possibility within their professional profiles.

Just a few days ago, the Mountain View firm also announced that it was going to start showing the main charging stations for electric cars (as long as the user requests it, of course) in the Maps app for iOS as well as for Android – in One week should be equally available for desktop. At first the idea is to show the key points of the Tesla network or Blink Network in the US, but the intention is to reach other countries soon.

With this it becomes clear again that Google Maps is becoming an incredibly complete and powerful tool. There are more and more utilities that we can give, all designed to move and move around the world. Do you often use Google Maps?
