Snapchat Adds New Map Layer To Give Users Restaurant Recommendations For Places Near Them

Food makes the world go round and if you happen to agree with that notion, well, we’ve got some great news for Snapchat users.

The social media giant has partnered up with a leading review website for eateries, The Infatuation. And that means they’ll soon be getting access to local eats and plenty of food recommendations depending on their specific location.

The announcement was made on Friday by the company where it confirmed the new addition of its Map Layer through The Infatuation.

With more restaurant recommendations being provided to users based on a location that’s near them, they can enjoy simple, convenient, and quick access to all the best eateries nearby.

For now, the rollout will be limited to some of the leading global destinations of the world such as London, Denver, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and more.

All these users need to do is select the button for Infatuation that’s present in the app’s top right-hand corner for the map. And that’s it, you will be on your way to finding restaurants galore through the simple click of the button.

And once you do come across an eatery that you adore, you can even recommend or share it with your friends circle through chat. On the other hand, your favorite eatery can also be added to the favorites section so that it’s saved for later. Then, you can always come back and refer to it whenever you wish to make plans.

But wait, the magic does not end there. The new partnership will also enable users to witness the restaurant reviews for Infatuation in the Place Profiles tab. And that’s located in more than different locations around the globe.

Snap has recently unveiled how more than 250 million users use the app to connect with their loved ones every month. This way, they know exactly what their loved ones and pals are doing.

For this reason, the company announced its Layers feature in the Map tab last year to pave the way for an exciting array of different opportunities that can be done with friends.

In case you weren’t already aware, the Layers tab in Snap gives users the freedom to add all sorts of data from the app’s developer partners to their map. This way, users get a glimpse of the world from a whole new perspective.

Another notable example is from the earlier part of this year when Snapchat linked up with Ticketmaster so they could launch an exciting endeavor that users could indulge in when it came to entertainment through the new Snap Map.

In the same way, users can find all sorts of recommendations for entertainment events on the Snap Map that are aligned with their personal preferences. All you need to do is swipe in either a left or a right manner and browse over the different options.

Similarly, you can also go and explore any upcoming event taking place at a venue nearby through this Layer functionality too.
