The new Google Maps feed
East feed created by Google Maps and powered by its community of users and businesses adapts to our interests and tastes. We can find out if they have added a new dish in our favorite restaurant or discover new routes for hiking. In addition, we can give “I like” to the publications, but not reply, as shown in the images we add.
