Google Maps for iOS Users Can Now 'Follow' Their Favourite Places

IOS users will then be able to remain up to date on their favourite places right from the Google Maps app, Internet giant Google has declared. The rollout on iOS comes about five month following its introduction on Android. Users can look for a location – whether it’s a new restaurant that opened up in the neighbourhood or must-try bakery across town – and tap the”Follow” button. The button is currently rolling out into the iOS users globally.

“Starting this week, you now are able to stay up to date on your favourite places from the Google Maps program on iOS. Simply search for a place–whether it is a brand new restaurant that just opened up in your area or must-try bakery across city – and tap the button. You will then be able to see significant updates from such places in your’For You’ tab so you can quickly learn about forthcoming events, offers and more,” Andrew Cooper, Product Manager, Google Maps, wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday.

“And now, places and businesses all over the world can see their followers at the Google’My Company’ program, and knowingly post helpful information to their own followers to see.

This Google Maps feature was initially rolled out for Android apparatus in October 2018.

“With more than 150 million locations on Google Maps and countless people searching for places to go, we left two upgrades so it’s even easier for you to keep up with the areas you care about and find out about places coming soon,” Google had mentioned back in October.
