Maps will highlight popular restaurants, museums, and other must-see locations using AI and local reviews.

This programme should lead guests to intriguing local sites instead of gentrified neighbourhoods. It’s easy to picture a future where traditional sites are ignored for fashionable ones, but Google’s AI formula should provide a nice blend. Coming soon on Android and iOS globally.
