Holiday Special Google Maps App Update: Now Check Local Business Pins to Navigation

The holiday season is almost here and everyone already has a long list of plans and meetups. In such times, when top class restaurants and other places are packed, local businesses are the last option to resort to. Now, you do not have to worry anymore as Google has made things easier for everyone.

Google is presenting its holiday gift to its customers by introducing a new update in the Google maps that shows tiny location pins of nearby stores and restaurants.

If you are planning to go somewhere and using Google maps, then look for the additional icons on your route. These are the restaurants and local stores that you check out during the holiday season. All you have to do is enter a location in the search box and check for these icons after pressing the directions button.

Not just icons, but you can also get more information about the location by clicking on it. You can press on the icon within navigation and learn more about the place. Google has suggested that “near me” and “local” searches have increased by 350 times in the past 10 years, which is why this new Google update will help people to find more and more places wherever they go.

We have been seeing local businesses near us in 2016 on Google maps, now is the time to check even the tiniest store near you. You can get this new update from the Play Store.
