Google Maps testing popular dishes feature in restaurant listings

04 May 2019 2

Google Map is one of the most successful products that Google worked upon and is now helping millions of users globally on a regular basis with their commute. The app consistently gets updated with new features and improvements. A few months back, Google Maps got an update bringing new departure and arrival time feature in addition to speed limits and camera alerts for traveling.

Now in the latest development, the app is taking its restraint and bar listing service to another level by offering the information about ‘popular dishes’ at a specific restaurant for now. The images of dishes would be crowdsourced and would fetch from the users who upload their pictures to Google Maps.

The new feature is more of a menu for a particular restaurant though it highlights the most popular dishes as we speculate from the name. The feature for popular dishes would be found under the menu tab though only if the menu of the restaurant is made available through Google Maps. While the feature is still in works and as per a popular online tech journal, the feature is yet in the beta phase.

Google apparently scans through the user reviews about a particular restaurant and dishes and then correlates them with the images uploaded by the users who previously visited there. Do you think this would be helpful to choose a place of your choice to have your food? Let us know in the comment section below.

When Google Maps shows especially the restaurants, then going a bit deeper and "literally into the kitchen", and allowing the users to browse through the dishes will give them more liberty.
