Google maps helps to make the best decisions in order to optimize the organization of his time and his outings in this time of health crisis. In addition, updates have been made to the service based on changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, note that several features that have been available there for a long time are still unknown by a large number of users.
Concretely, these options highlight practical information on commercial or catering establishments while taking into account social distancing.
It is clear that their use has greatly increased in recent months.
With the following three tips, first mentioned by Google, we can know the best time to go out. You can go directly to the most interesting places or offers without wasting time and without taking any risks.
Plan outings with peak times and live activity from Google Maps
Google’s mapping application provides detailed information on rush hour in public places. Users can thus identify times when there are few people to be able to walk around in complete safety.
They also give details of the peak hours of parks, beaches and other points of interest such as gas stations, laundromats, grocery stores and pharmacies. The data is visible on the map, whether you are on a computer or a smartphone.
Discover interesting places nearby with Live View
The Live View tool uses Augmented Reality to find places of interest near a given location.
At the same time, it provides essential data on each location: opening time, attendance, ranking of consumers, etc. Information relating to health standards or safety measures applied can also be found there. The functionality also intervenes to indicate the way in any city and district.
Find up-to-date business information with Duplex
Duplex technology is at the heart of Google Maps and is used to gather up-to-date business information.
Thanks to this tool, companies are able to interact in real time with users through a support service provided by Google Assistant. This artificial intelligence is able to learn about the services and sales policy of commercial players according to the needs of Internet users.
Due to the current situation, research on products like face masks and disinfection products is brought to the fore. The same goes for the health requirements in force in each establishment, whether in connection with wearing a mask, checking the temperature or otherwise.
