Google Maps receives a significant AI upgrade, including five new features.

Google Maps is one of the world's most popular and widely used navigation apps, but it isn't resting on its laurels. The tech behemoth recently announced a massive AI upgrade with five new features.

Immersive View, which allows you to see your route from street level in 3D, is one of the most impressive new features. 

This means you can get a realistic and detailed view of your surroundings, landmarks, and directions before even beginning your journey.

You can also explore various locations and see how they appear in real time

This feature is especially useful in unfamiliar or complex areas where you could easily become lost or confused.

Google Maps Search, which uses AI to help you find relevant locations based on your preferences, needs, and context, is another cool upgrade. 

For example, if you're looking for a restaurant, Google Maps will recommend options based on your preferences, budget, and availability.

It also makes use of user-submitted photos and reviews to provide a more accurate picture of what to expect. You can narrow down your search results by using filters such as ratings, cuisine, or distance.
