Google is adding “photorealistic aerial views” to right around 100 milestones in Google Maps, the organization reported on Wednesday. The views, which help to remember Apple Maps’ Flyover feature, give you an above take a gander at milestones in cities including Barcelona, London, New York, San Francisco, and Tokyo, as per Google.
The aerial views are a “first step” toward sending off the “immersive view” the organization flaunted at Google I/O, as per a blog entry from Google Maps director of product Amanda Leicht Moore. Vivid view will likewise incorporate indoor perspectives and data like traffic and the weather conditions layered on the map, Google representative Genevieve Park tells. At I/O, Google said vivid view would start carrying out in Los Angeles, London, New York, San Francisco and Tokyo “later this year.”
Notwithstanding the aerial views, Google is carrying a few other new features to Maps. For cycling routes, you’ll have the option to see extra data like whether a particular street you’ll be told to go on is a significant or minor street, on the off chance that your route incorporates steps or steep hills, and whether you can hope to hit heavy traffic. What’s more, in the event that somebody has imparted their area to you, you’ll have the option to get notifications when they get to or leave a location. Apple offers a comparative feature with the Find My app.
The new aerial views and location sharing notifications are presently carrying out internationally on iOS and Android, Moore says. The updated cycling route data will launch in the “coming weeks.”
