Google Maps adds more places to show how busy a place is


People's lives have changed a lot in the pandemic situation. Everyday apps are also coming up with new features to keep pace with the changing lifestyle. Google Maps, our path recognition partner, has come up with such a useful feature. This feature allows you to see how crowded a place is by phone. You don't even have to search for it separately. The ‘busyness’ status will automatically show up in Google Maps. You can also see on the map how much hygiene is being followed wherever you want to go. As a result, there will be no more risk while walking on the road.

Google Maps has been busy since 2016. Although this facility was available in a small area. This feature has become very popular in recent times. That's why Google is now showing this engagement index in more and more places. They plan to cover five times more space than in June.

Google will show live activity information for beaches, parks, grocery stores, gas stations, laundry, drug stores, and more. This information can be seen only if the relevant places are open. In addition, the employees of the shop will be informed on the map whether they are following the hygiene rules, whether they need masks, whether the temperature is being checked.

Users can also find information about a store or restaurant using the map's live view feature. For this you have to open the camera of the phone and point towards that place. This will allow you to see if it is open, how crowded it is, what the rating of the place is, and whether hygiene is being observed with it. This feature will be available on Android and iOS phones in the coming days.
