When we think of Google, we essentially remember normal searches. But in reality even in this simple function there are many things hidden. We can even search by voice, images and even ambient sound. At the Google Search On 2022 event, the company announced seven fundamental ways to improve the search experience and make it more intuitive and useful. But in the midst of so much news, what will come to Google apps and services in concrete? That’s exactly what we’re going to explain.
These are the news coming to Google apps and services
Closer to real life research
When we want to find something in real life, we can show a person the image and explain more about it. Now Google will take this to Internet searches. It’s a function called Multisearch and it was first demonstrated at the Google I/O 2022 event.
With Multisearch, you can add a text query on top of an image search. For example, after doing a search and clicking on the image of a computer mouse, we can add the search text wirelessly.
This makes the search much more powerful.
Google is also introducing search filters that you can add to text queries for faster results. For example, if you are looking for a house, you can add filters “for couples”, “for living”, “for families” and much more.
Text translation in saved photos
You can also add topics to deepen your search and see relevant images, videos, maps, news and more.
If you have an image on your phone that has text in a language you don’t understand, you can use Google Lens to translate it and rewrite it back into the image. Achieving the same result in Photoshop would take a lot of time, but with Google Lens, anyone can do it instantly.
Google Maps Improvements
Google Maps is getting more and more powerful and will get even more so. This way we will be able to have a better idea of what is interesting in each neighborhood. That way we know if it’s worth a visit.
On the other hand, with the immersive view, we can have a 3D rendered aerial view of a location, check real-time traffic conditions and see weather forecasts. You can even look inside some establishments through what appears to be a moving drone shot, but it’s just a neural rendering of images. It’s also a great way to explore new cities on Google Maps.
Finally, Live View is an augmented reality feature that aims to make Google Maps more accessible. With it, you can use your smartphone to get information about everything around you. Basically, it is as if the smartphone has turned into special augmented reality glasses in which we obtain all kinds of information.
Personalized shopping suggestions
Google will help you find good food. So, when looking for a food item, nearby restaurants appear that serve it along with prices, ratings, ingredients used, and if it matches your food preferences, such as vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and more.
In the meantime if you are browsing clothing.
When browsing apparel, we now have the appearance functionality. So suggest items that go well with your selection. You can also inspect products in a more immersive way through automated 360-degree rotations similar to how you do it in real life.
Suggested routes according to your engine type
Last year, Google Maps introduced a way to reduce your carbon emissions. To that end, he began to suggest routes that are the most fuel-efficient.
Now you can see the most fuel efficient routes based on your vehicle’s engine type (hybrid, electric, diesel or gasoline) to maximize your efficiency. And if you’re looking for a new car, you can also see your annual fuel costs and emissions estimates.
So these are the main new features coming to Google services and apps that will undoubtedly make everything much better.
