Google has introduced three new features in Google Maps to discover local places for users in India. The software giant has revamped the Explore tab to a redesigned 'India-inspired' Explore tab, which will now fetch dining offers and suggestions tailored to users' taste.

The Explore tab in Google Maps is an aggregator point where you see dining suggestions, events, offers and other things to do in the area around you. Now, Google says that with the 'India-inspired' Explore tab, users will see seven new shortcuts. These include Restaurants, Petrol Pumps, ATMs, Offers, Shopping, Hotels, and Chemists. Using machine learning, Google Maps automatically identifies the top suggestions across these categories in every city.

Users will also have an option to explore popular neighborhoods in their city. They can simply tap on the arrow beside "Explore Nearby" and can make a selection. Additionally, the other Indian cities can also be looked upon by searching the city name.
