Google Maps is rolling out a new feature to users this month — the ability to follow your favorite places and receive alerts directly from them.
Let’s say you like a certain boutique, but you keep missing out on all of their awesome sales. With this new feature, you can follow that shop in Google Maps, then be notified when things like sales, events, and updates take place.
Additionally, if you want to be in the know when it comes to new places opening up, you’ll start seeing profiles for places before they open on Google Maps. To see these, look for the opening date in orange.
You’ll be seeing both of these things roll out over the next few weeks.
