Google releases new Multisearch, shopping, food and maps features
Google established new multi-search features in Google Search, Google Lens, Shoppings and Maps. All functions are aimed at bringing information search to people in more flexible and helpful ways. Many improvements cross over Multisearch, Google Shopping and Google Maps. EverRanks will perform clear views in this article.
Look for food through Multisearch
See a food dish that makes you hungry? Now Google Lens can help you take a photo of that dish and add “near me” text in Google MultiSearch to show restaurants where you can easily order.
Cindy Huynh, Product Manager, Google Lens, said “This new way of searching will help me and local businesses in my community, so I can more easily support neighborhood shops during the holidays”.
This feature was published on 17th November in the U.S mobile results for searching.
Here is an image of that action:
Find specific food
Besides searching with photos for dishes near you, you can also search to find these specific dishes. Google will direct you to nearby food stores and restaurants to find the exact dish you want. Moreover, Google will also give you more useful information about ingredients, pricing, menu, location…
This feature was launched on 17th November in English in the U.S on mobile apps.
Google Lens for translation getting an upgrade level
Recently, Google is carrying out a giant update to Google Lens. This update allows users to translate text on more complex backgrounds. Instead of hiding the original text, Google will remove it and re-create different pixels underneath with AI background. After that, Google will cover the translated text on the image.
Google is still applying generative adversarial networks known as GAN models. The models help present translated text better. It is the same technology that Google uses in Pixel devices to create Magic Eraser on photos.
This update will be available later this year, hopefully before the end of 2022.
This is a sample illustrating how Google Lens is covering the translation in a flexible way for users to understand:
Google Shopping publishes AR shoes
Google has also released shopping features that allow you to view shoes in augmented reality (AR) over your own shoes. According to Google, this new shopping AR experience for sneakers. You can flexibly spin, zoom, and see shoes in your space. This will work with brands like Saucony, VANS, and Merrell.
Here is a screenshot example:
New models for AR beauty shopping
Google added a new augmented reality search function to try products on different models with diverse features and skin tones. Google also adds a new photo library with 150 models showing various elements of skin as skin tones, ages, genders, face shapes, ethnicities and skin types. This will accurately check over 2,000 foundation shades from different brands.
Google Maps live view search
Right now, you can search and experience close regions with augmented reality by applying Google Apps on your mobile. You can now open the Google Maps app on your phone, click on the camera icon, and scroll through the screen to see the overlays of what is nearby in real time.
Google has been demoing this feature for a time but beginning this week, it will be released in London, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Paris.
Here is a screenshot of what you will see:
Wheelchair accessibility and EV charge filters
Google Maps now allows you to search for charging stations with fast-charging plugs or stations having plugs compatible with your EV. This shows CSS or CHAdeMo charges that do 350kW or 50Kw and Google may even display their availability. This will be fully available on both Android and iOS wherever there are EV charging stations.
In addition, the wheelchair icon on Google Maps now allows users to filter Google Maps to see if a location has a wheelchair-accessible entrance. This will be fully available on both Android and iOS wherever EV charging stations exist.
