Finally, Chennapragada said that "just for fun", the Maps team has also been experimenting with a digital avatar that can help further guide users, with a cartoon fox shown off as an example.

And it's not just navigation that Maps is improving. A virtual arrow on the map tells you what direction you're walking. The next time you're exploring somewhere new, getting together with friends, or hosting out-of-towners in your own city, you can use Google Maps to make quick decisions and find the best spots. Google Maps will then pop up a conversation head-like bubble which follows you as you browse to different areas. Recently, Google has begun automatically adding new businesses, addresses, and places of interest, and giving users information about whether or not their favorite local haunts are open, and how long the wait time might be.

The Explore tab will not be used only for restaurants, but it will also be used for sightseeing destinations, fairs, and events in the area. Google uses machine learning for this and generates the match percentage based on factors like your food and drink preferences, the places you have visited, and so on.
