At the moment Google has made available to users the views of almost 100 of the most popular landmarks in the world in cities such as Barcelona, ​​London, San Francisco or Tokyo. To find out which ones are available, users just need to search for a landmark on Google Maps and head to the Photos section.

On the other hand, the Montain Vew has announced new features aimed at cyclists who, for more than 12 years, have been able to access directions based on AI technology combined with city data and comments from the Google Maps community. With the new information provided by the platform, users will be able to compare cycling routes and learn more about their characteristics before starting the trip.

Among the data that Google Maps will offer from now on is information about traffic, places where it is unfeasible to ride a bicycle because there are stairs or places that are very steep. You will also be able to have a detailed breakdown of the route to be carried out, to know what type of terrain you are going to pass through, be it streets or highways.

Finally, Google has introduced a new notification system, which it has presented as a tool "to share the location, know when a person has reached or left their destination" and coordinate the schedules of both.

After sharing location with another contact, the user will be able to configure a notification to know, for example, when their companion has arrived at a concert.

Google has insisted that it has created this feature respecting privacy regulations, since notifications can only be configured in the event that another person has shared their location.

Both aerial views of landmarks and location sharing notifications have already started rolling out globally to Google Maps on Android and iOS. However, information on cycling routes will be released in the coming weeks and in those parts of the world where the option of cycling routes is enabled.
