Google Maps launch new AI match feature

Google Maps' new AI update tells you how much you're going to like a place before you even visit.

The new feature uses an algorithm to rate restaurants, bars or event places and attractions on how much they believe you would like them.

It looks at reviews, previous searches and AI to decide on a score out of 100.

They wrote in a previous blog post: "Google Maps has always helped you get where you need to go as quickly as possible, and soon, it'll help you do even more. In the coming months, Google Maps will become more assistive and personal with new features that help you figure out what to eat, drink, and do - no matter what part of the world you're in. So say goodbye to endless scrolling through lists of recommended restaurants or group texts with friends that never end in a decision on where to go. The next time you're exploring somewhere new, getting together with friends, or hosting out-of-towners in your own city, you can use Google Maps to make quick decisions and find the best spots.

"Tapping on any food or drink venue will display your "match" - a number that suggests how likely you are to enjoy a place and reasons explaining why. We use machine learning to generate this number, based on a few factors: what we know about a business, the food and drink preferences you've selected in Google Maps, places you've been to, and whether you've rated a restaurant or added it to a list. Your matches change as your own tastes and preferences evolve over time - it's like your own expert sidekick, helping you quickly assess your options and confidently make a decision."

The feature is now available on the Google Maps iOS and Android apps.
