Google Map is being a compact of every thing, nowadays. All of us might have depended on map at least once. And there are also people like me who always look up to google map for every thing. Even to find out the nearest tea stall ( yeah, I’m just obsessed with it). Anyways, coming back to the topic, Google Map has added a new feature for travelers . Google Map has announced its new feature which let people to discover new places with help from Local Guides. The blog post even add that the feature is available for 9 cities of the world which includes- London, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Bangkok, Delhi, Osaka, and Mexico City.
What the blog says
The blog post included: "Across 24,000 cities and towns, we now have an active community of 120 million Local Guides on Google Maps who are passionate about sharing their experiences by contributing reviews, photos, lists and more. If you're in Bangalore, Melvin John is a Local Guide whose reviews and recommendations will guide you through the city's microbrewery scene.
