What happened? Google Maps is getting a whole new look – and it’s going to make exploring your city, landmarks, and restaurants a lot more immersive. The company announced today at its Google I/O 2022 developer conference that it’s introducing an “Immersive View” for Maps. With this view, you’ll be able to get a better look at a particular location in the app. You can explore cities, landmarks, and even restaurants in greater detail than ever before. So if you want to know what that new restaurant down the street looks like before you visit, or if you want to see what the Eiffel Tower looks like up close, Google Maps has you covered.
Why is this important? Well, intuitive user interfaces can have a massive impact on the way we use technology! Humans are used to the 3D world in which we are born, and the real world is our most familiar user interface. As a result, if the virtual realm becomes more like the actual one, more individuals will adopt these new technologies. In a world that’s increasingly digital, it’s important to find ways to make the digital world feel more human. That’s what Google is doing with its new Immersive View feature. By giving users a better and more natural way to explore and experience the places around them, Google is making its Maps app feel more like a real-world guide. And that’s a good thing.
It’s not clear when the new Immersive View feature will be available to everyone, but it’s likely that it will roll out to users in the coming weeks. So keep an eye out for it in your Google Maps app. And in the meantime, start planning your next adventure. With Immersive View, you’ll be able to see the world in a whole new way.
