Google Maps helping hand – La Nouvelle Tribune

To help better respect social distancing during this period of the coronavirus pandemic, the American giant Google helps its users with its service Google Maps, in order to detect places at risk due to high traffic. Functional for a few months now, the geolocation service of Google is very popular with users. According to the site 01Net, the use of the latter has increased by half since May.

The number of places multiplied by 5

Google has also improved these options by offering frequentation of the targeted places directly visible on the map. This new feature is accessible without having to click on the places searched by users of Google Maps. On systems like Android, Apple and Desktop, the American firm has also provided a more or less bulky red light, given the crowds. Also, the millions of places targeted by the application should be multiplied by five, compared to the number of places available in June 2020.

Often crowded places such as beaches, small grocery stores, laundromats and gas stations will also be added to the platform’s database. Note that the display of places at risk of contamination should be available on Live View. This therefore offers users a version of Google Maps, but in advanced virtual reality.
