Google Revamps Google News Initiative, Newscast and More

The feature is simple: once you've set your destination in maps, you open your camera and point it in the direction you're facing and Google's machine learning magic will toss up some arrows to let you know which way to start walking.

During the first day keynote, Aparna Chennapragada spoke about some new features for Google Maps, where she discussed how the requirements that users have for Google Maps has changed, and much more is needed. You receive directions for the location with the most votes. Since launch, Google has mapped over 220 countries and territories and is helping more than 1 billion Maps users. The For You tab will help you to stay on top of all the happenings in the area around you, whether you're in your own neighbourhood or travelling.

The "For you" tab will make suggestions about places to visit based on information Google has about you, and you can "follow" suggestions to reference them later.

For starters, there's a new Explore tab that will recommend places to eat or have fun at around an area you search for in the app. Google is also making recommending places that fit your tastes better thanks to "matches" that give a food or drink venue a number rating based on what Maps has learned about you such as your likes and dislikes. For example, a Map user can create a list of his favorite restaurants and send it to a friend or family member who is visiting. Using a few different factors, such as general business knowledge and your personal preferences, will allow "Your Match" to generate a score. A step above GPS, VPS effectively lays Maps' navigation features over what the user sees in the Camera app. VPS will help Maps to figure out where you are, what direction you're now pointed in and then help you get where you need to go.

Meanwhile, Google is introducing new features that help users "make better decisions on the go and experience the world in new ways", according to Google's Jen Fitzpatrick. If you go to places on the list, Maps will cross them off to show your progress.
