Google Maps will now recommend places to visit based on where you’ve already been.

After initially previewing the update at its I/O developer conference, Google has begun to roll out some of its new features for Google Maps, including an array of settings that revolve around personalized recommendations.

Two new tabs can be found on the Google Maps homescreen – “Explore” and “For You” – which give you a rundown of places such as restaurants, venues and landmarks based on your location and previous activity.

While the Explore tab takes into account your current location and time of day in order to offer up personalized suggestions, the For You tab takes a look at the areas you frequent. This latter tab also keeps you in the loop about restaurants opening up and other popular, trending places in the area.
