Google announces new Explore feature for Google Maps


  • Candido

    Anyone in Canada see this option?

    • Nexzen

      Data shows in Canada, we don’t like to explore.

    Doesn’t work in Canada. You can test by moving to a US city like New York and the button will appear… but doesn’t come up in any city in Canada (that I’ve tried).

  • FakeBibic

    Isn’t this the field trip app?

  • It’s Me

    Neat idea but why is Canada excluded? We don’t have any POI they care to report?

    As a Canadian living in Japan, it works here. This feature is amazing 🙂

  • Vestaloyne

    If this isn’t working try Google’s other app Field Trip: it’s basically the same thing but it’ll work in Canada

    I’m wondering if this would become a paid ad feature in the future, or business’ can bump themselves up in the results. I feel like it skirts the line between their “open search”, and maps which is technically something else. We’ll see in the future if this option takes off.. Google now, maps, navigation, translate, and explore. Its like the one stop shop for tourists.
