gmaps exploreHow many of you make use of Google Maps every single day in your lives? Well, the Internet giant intends to make your Google Maps experience more enjoyable the next time you are out on a vacation, since you would spend less time looking for an answer and more time exploring the surroundings via Google Maps for Android and iOS.

Basically, whenever you are in the mood for exploring new places in the area, all that you need to do is to tap the new Explore button that is located at the bottom right corner of the map in order to obtain an overview on what is located in the vicinity (where available). Explore being your guide will let you check out different places and activities which can adapt to each area and moment regardless of the time of the day, and it works great also when you’re checking out other neighborhoods and cities on the map, allowing you to plan the day’s outing with greater efficiency.

All results in Explore will also change based on context – including the current time and weather, and best results are obtained when you’re signed in with location reporting and history turned on. Of course, there are also privacy issues to be concerned about, but if it weighs in with more positives, why not give it a go? [Press Release]
