Google Maps has been crowd-sourcing pics of the dishes at specific restaurants, but a new section will tag the most popular dishes with images to match.
As seen on Twitter by Taylor Wimberley and verified by various other consumers, the upgrade includes a new section on a restaurant’s Maps listing to the Menu page dubbed as Popular Dishes:
The new function appears to evaluate reviews of the restaurant to find usually-cited dish names, then includes images added with those feedbacks to the Popular section. Whether humans are involved or this is performed automatically is presently not clear, but a completely automated system might presumably make errors whereby somebody’s review cited one dish and the image displayed different. That claimed, Google does have wide image-recognition technology, which could be employed here.
The media claims that while you can recommend edits to the data displayed, as with anything on Maps, various dishes do not have names since the person reviewing them did not add a caption. That is not so useful when users see something tasty and need to order it, but they could always display the image to the staff.
Speaking of Google Maps, with a new update, users just have to open up Google Maps if you need to look for an EV charging station. The latest update of Google Maps for iOS, Android, and the web now display real-time accessibility for charging ports in the UK and the US, offering you an enhanced idea of when to go for a recharge. You’re no longer consigned to static data similar to before.
The feature will not assist you find a Tesla Supercharger, but it will cover the networks of EVgo, Chargemaster, and SemaConnect, with Chargepoint coming shortly. Station data also comprises other useful tidbits such as port types and charging speeds.
