One of the features of Google Maps is that it helps you find places that you need to go to, however for Google Maps users on iOS, it seems that Google has recently rolled out a new feature in the form of the “For You” tab. This is actually not a new feature and was available on Android, but now it has since expanded to iOS devices.


What makes the “For You” tab interesting is that instead you inputting the place you want to go, Google Maps will actually be able to suggest places for you to visit. This means that if you’re in a new city or just want to try some new bar, restaurant, or cafe, then this is where the “For You” tab comes in handy.

According to Google, “The For You tab is designed to be a constant source of inspiration tailored to your tastes and preferences. Simply follow neighborhoods or places you’re interested in to get updates and recommendations—everything from recent news about an opening or pop up, a new menu item, and even restaurant suggestions based on what you’re likely to enjoy.”

In addition to launching on iOS, the feature has also expanded to 130+ more countries on Android. The feature should already be live so iOS users just need to make sure they’ve the latest version of Google Maps and are living in a country that supports the feature.
