This will help the user to plan the perfect time to visit the place and can give them an idea of what to expect there.

2. Recents Tab on Desktop Google Maps

Google will soon launch the “Recents Tab” on desktop Google Maps and users will be able to see an organized data of the places they have searched by City. This will help them to find the places quickly from their search history.

3. With Google Lens, Identify Landmarks, Artwork, Plants, Animals and Many More

Users with the help of Google Lens will be able to find and identify more about the thing that have captured their attention in the places they are visiting. So next time when you see a statue or an interesting flower, take out Google Lens and ask questions like “Whose statue is this?” or “What is the name of this flower?” and so on.

4. Discover Local Cuisines with Google Lens 

With the help of Google Lens, users will also be able to search for a local cuisine they really want to try out or find the nearest restaurant selling it.

6. Bikes and Scooter Information

If you really want to roam a city you find interesting, Google will help you in finding the nearest place where you can get a bike or a scooter for your purpose.
