Google Search gets better

Now you can find your best food restaurant through searches. You can search for your particular meal from a nearby restaurant. Additionally, you can use the Google Lens feature to click images or screenshots to find out where the food can be available locally.

We are even hearing about a new exciting update that would be launched soon to the platform’s Lens AR. The text can be deleted, and recreated with the help of pixels that are created through AI-generated backdrops. Next up, the text would be translated over the overlay at the image’s top.

Maps get a visual search option

Next, Google Maps is getting a visual search. It’s an Augmented Reality Live View that is currently rolled out in a few cities on Android and iOS platforms. The Live View shows coffee shops, ATMs, and other such spots in cities. The feature activates when you hold your phone and point it at the things around you.

Importantly, EV owners can take benefit from this feature. They can activate the mode and find out a charging station to “fuel” their ride. For this, you can click on the Fast Charge Filter and you will see the list of nearby charging stations.

Find a wheelchair near you

Among the features, Google now allows the physically impaired to look for places that facilitate wheelchair usage. The service was beta released in select countries in 2020.  

Users can see a wheelchair icon on the business profile at a place if it has an entrance that supports it. To start spotting such places, users need to turn on the “Accessible Places” option on their Google Maps app. Additionally, people can also look for public parking, resting, and public washrooms.

Google Shopping gets better

Google is adding new and exciting features to its Shopping segment too. Apparently, the search giant is bringing an AR shopping offering to help users find the perfect foundation match.
