It doesn't matter if a Chinese restaurant has a 4.9-star rating if you only like pizza, and that's the problem that Google is trying to solve with a new "For You" tab. Google said the dedicated "For You" tab will present information about new restaurants opening nearby, trending spots and many more based on the places the users have rated and visited, MacRumors has learned.
"For You" Tab: An all-new tab featuring places you may want to try in areas you regularly frequent. If you're anything like me, you'll punch in a direction on Maps and start walking, only to see the blue dot on your phone's screen is moving in the wrong direction.
Match Scores: A "match" score will be displayed for food and drink venues according to how likely you are to enjoy them. Among the things the technology giant first showcased at the event are the new features that are coming to the Google Maps app this year. A user can open Camera with Google Maps navigation to launch what Google calls VPS (Visual Positioning System). A user can see the names of places around them, as well as street names and directions, right in front of them.

It will also be easier to create and share lists in Maps, so you can come up with some ideas and share them with friends and family and - assuming the group has similar or comparable tastes - vote on what to do and where to go. Street View can label things in the real world using your camera, and show you an overlay to let you know which way to go.
