NEW DELHI: Google Maps will now be able to tell you how busy a restaurant or any other place of business is before you reach there directly in the map view, as per a report by 9to5Google. The ‘busyness’ indicators would be directly visible on the map, Google announced during its Search On event.
As per the report, Google Maps will put “Busier than usual” and “As busy as it gets” indicators directly under the location names in the area you are in. Seeing that a certain restaurant or a shop in the area is busy should allow you to plan your visit more judiciously. The tech giant showcased this in a demo.
Also, if you are navigating to a particular location, the Maps app on Android and iOS will tell you how busy the place is, with the busyness indicators for the new locations reportedly promised “soon” by Google.
The tech giant also announced some of the new features that Google Search would get. The new AI tools have been implemented to improve spelling recognition, passage recognition, understanding the subtopics of certain topics, understanding key moments in video etc.
Google has introduced a new spelling algorithm to improve the search engine’s understanding of misspelled words and hence, reduce the mistakes. As per Google, the spelling algorithm uses a “deep neural net” to improve its recognition of wrong spellings and also find the right results within a span of 3 miliseconds. The California-based software giant claims that the new AI spelling update “ makes a greater improvement to spelling than all of our improvements over the last five years.”
