Update Google Maps gets 'Local Guide' feature in select cities: All you need to know

Google keeps on adding new features to its Maps app in a bid to make it more user-friendly. The company has already added a new toggle to switch off 3D view. Now, the search giant has reportedly added a new feature that would allow Google Maps users to follow Local Guides for better-personalized recommendations. This feature is being currently piloted in a few cities, including Delhi, San Francisco, and Tokyo. The list also includes Sao Paulo, Bangkok, London, New York, Osaka, and Mexico City.

It will provide smart recommendations based on the places you rate and visit. You’ll now also be able to follow pre-selected Local Guides and discover new locations thanks to their reviews. The feature will work only when you follow a particular Local Guide. One will find the Local Guide recommendation in the ‘For You’ tab. Once you follow, you get their recommendations in the Google Maps app.
