Google announced a bunch of new features and additions to its services at the Google I/O 2022 developer conference today. Perhaps the one that stands out the most, and is also likely to be used the most in the future, is the new “Immersive View” in Google Maps. Immersive View, as the name suggests, will allow you to get a better, more detailed look at a particular location in the Google Maps application. It’s essentially a new way to experience what a location, landmark, or even a restaurant will be like.
Google gave an example of what the city of London looks like in its new Immersive View. Here, take a look at it below:
Immersive view in @GoogleMaps is a new way to experience what a neighborhood, landmark, restaurant and venue will be like — and even feel like you’re right there. It uses advances in computer vision and AI to fuse together billions of Street View images. #GoogleIO pic.twitter.com/DgJwwE03rQ

It is, however, worth pointing out that this feature won’t be immediately available to everyone right now. Google says it will begin to roll out to major cities including L.A., London, New York, San Francisco, and Tokyo later this year.
This is a developing story…
