To use the Google Maps community feature, tap the 'Spots' tab at the bottom left, then tap the window that rises from the bottom.



Then, you will see a 'community feed' that includes recommended spots in the area, updated information on local businesses, and a list of attention.



With the community feed, you can follow your favorite restaurants and users, and easily get useful information about the area, such as restaurants offering limited-time menus and changing opening hours. When getting new information, the recommended information estimated from your

location history etc. will be displayed preferentially.



According to Google, the number of ratings, reviews, photos, updates, answers and other contributions posted on Google Maps reaches 20 million daily. Google says it plans to enhance its community feed to make it easier to find useful information for its users.
