As of recently, Google might allow you to post food photos on its Maps app. The tech giant is now testing the feature on their Maps app that would permit users to attach food photos to their post’s location whenever they go to a restaurant or to places where they serve food.
It seems that the feature is expressly available to Google Maps enthusiasts who have already posted 50 reviews on where they go out to serve meals via Google’s Local Guides enhancement.
So, Google might want you to boost and multiply your restaurant reviews so that you could benefit from this particular option. They might have thought of this innovative idea, as they wanted to rival with social networks where people usually post their food photos, i.e. Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
Moreover, the new Maps feature will actually detect when a picture was taken at a restaurant and will allow you to post it along with the establishment’s location on Google Maps, whenever you feel like sharing your extraordinary meal experiences with your friends.
Moreover, earlier this year, Tablescape was Google’s initial attempt at allowing users to take photos of food and post them. Google decided to shut down Tablescape, as they wanted to invest in other features. However, it seems they did not give up on food photography, as they promised their users they’d see similar enhancements in their future Tablescape-like projects.
Thus, Tablescape used to be an option adherent to Google Maps that allowed users to capture “food graphs” in helping them enable a collection of food pictures, with different captions, that would organize them into several groups, so that users that browsed those groups would gain an ampler impression on specific restaurants via the photos taken over there.
Despite the fact that this feature is still undergoing tests, the variant for those who have used Google’s Local Guides will permit you to post pictures of your “epic meals.”
May the early trial of the feature be successful, Google might make it accessible to all of its users.
All in all, many tech consumers nowadays are accustomed to taking photos of their meals, so Google’s initiative could only be the best option they have thought of.
