Google Maps for iOS Updated With ‘Match’ Customized Restaurant Recommendations

by John_A

Google Maps was today updated with a new “Match” feature that’s designed to offer up personalized restaurant recommendations based on a user’s customized tastes.

The Match option allows users to tap on a food or drink spot to see if they’re likely to enjoy a new spot based on past restaurant visiting history. The update also includes a list of how many restaurants have been visited in the Explore tabs trending feature.

Thanks for using Google Maps!

– Our new “match” feature will help you find your one true love. And by love, we mean your next favorite cheeseburger. Tap on a food or drink spot to see how likely you are to enjoy it based on your unique preferences – so you can spend more time eating and less time searching for places to go.

– When viewing trending lists in the Explore tab, you can now see how many restaurants you’ve been to. Keep discovering and going to new places to complete a list!

Google’s Match feature was first outlined in May at Google I/O, and it rolled out for Android users in June before expanding to iOS users today.

Recommendations will take into account food and drink preferences selected in Google Maps, places you’ve been to, and places you’ve rated or added to a list. Scores for restaurants will get smarter over time with usage.

Google Maps can be downloaded from the iOS App Store for free. [Direct Link]
