Search Engine Giant Tests Q&A Feature for Google Maps/Digital Information World

Tech companies are constantly updating new unique features on their platforms. The increasing competition in the market makes it a necessity. While some platforms features fail, others are successful. However, some are for testing purposes and may continue in the future or are eliminated after a few test runs.

Among many such features and platforms is Google, which is constantly testing and updating the functionality of its products. Recently, Google has been updating and testing new features on Google Maps. Google Maps is a great guide for showing people their way through new areas and towns and it certainly got us out of a lot of dead ends along the way.

Now Google Maps is updating another new feature. In the Maps section of Google, whenever someone searches for a place, a new question and answer feature will also appear, as noticed Allie Margeson. While question and answers are an integral part of Google, they are available on its main page whenever you search for a particular thing.

However, now Google is bringing it to Maps as well. In the Maps part, whenever someone searches for a particular location, a particular question bucket will appear. In the questions section on Google Maps, users can ask questions and other queries about that particular location, and other users viewing the question can acknowledge them with answers if they are aware of them.

This particular feature is seen by many users in breaks. Some say it was visible to them three weeks ago, some saw it a week ago, and for some it is not yet available. This shows that Google is offering the features to users around the world at different durations. While this is a cool feature, it’s for testing purposes.

This means the feature is not confirmed to be officially released. The tech firm is testing it and once assured that it will be a good version, it will be launched permanently worldwide.
