Google Maps is introducing a feature for users to keep up with local businesses.
Users can now follow or subscribe businesses in the Google Maps app, which is what like to following Facebook pages.
After following a business, users will get all the latest news in the For you tab. News items may include events, offers, and other updates.
“Ever wandered by your favorite store just to find out you missed a great sale? Or maybe you’re always the last of your friends to find out about the new hot spots opening in town…
Those using Google Maps for Android can now follow places right from the app. Rolling out now, just search for that coffee shop you love or that clothing store you’ve been meaning to pop into and tap the “Follow” button.”
This feature is currently only available on Google Maps for Android.
