Google Maps “Follow” Button

Google is extremely rolling out for launching its new features for its map app. On Thursday, October 25, it offered one more feature.

It is a new “Follow” button for users which will appear in the business listings. When you have clicked on this button, you will get the latest business updates automatically. These updates will directly go into the user’s app “For You” tab. This feature is initially for android users, not for iOS.

Now, you can easily follow your favourite places like restaurants and stores. When you click on to follow button, you will be among the first to know the special offers, events and any other updates from which you would like to hear about.
