Google launched its personalized For You section of recommendations in Google Maps on Android back in June, and today, it announced a big expansion for the feature: it’s launching for the first time on iOS in over 40 countries and expanding to over 130 new countries on Android.
The For You section was first shown off at Google I/O earlier this year, promising a personalized feed of updates and news from the places and stores you already like as well as recommendations for new things to try, whether you’re in your local neighborhood or looking for a restaurant when you’re on vacation. Users can also follow specific stores and restaurants to make sure they’re always in the loop. It’s sort of like a Maps-specific social network for anyone who was looking for such a thing.
The For You section should roll out to Maps users today.
