function local favorite google maps

Google Maps is probably the most complete Google app. Offers many useful functions that allow us from knowing if there are works along the way to finding a public toilet nearby. To this wide range of features we must now add the function Favorite locations just submitted by Google.

With this new function we can discover what are the best places to eat and drink in the city. That way, Google Maps will become a serious rival of TripAdvisor.

With ?Favorite Locations? of Google Maps you will find the best restaurants in your city

Google Maps has long allowed users to add reviews and photos of the places they visit. Therefore, many users already use Google Maps to know what places they recommendto visit Other users. What I will do is to organize all this content to make it easier to know what are the best places to have fun in the city where you are.

The Favorite Places feature show a list of the best places to eat in the city of your choice, sorted according to the score given by users. The feature is now available for the following cities: Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. However, Google will enable the function for more cities in the coming days.

Discover new restaurants in your city thanks to Google Maps

One of the best things about this new feature is that you will make two special listings of places to eat or leisure. The first one is called Hidden Gems (Hidden Jewels) and show 10 sites that are little visited, but very loved. And the other is the call Rising Star (Rising Stars) They show 10 places with less than two years of antiquity and have quickly received many positive ratings.

Of course, to facilitate the search for new stores, the app allows you to filter the results according to the city or the types of restaurants available So you can find the place you were looking for. These favorite Locations will be in the Explore tab of the Google Maps app. You can easily identify them because they have the yellow function label.
