Google previews new personalized Google Maps

Google spoke about a new Google Maps at Google I/O earlier today, one that would offer a different mapping experience to its users. The company took to the stage to preview the new Google Maps that has the capability to customize itself depending on the user. Google says that the map can highlight specific areas that are important to the user.

"Like a friend drawing you a map to her favorite restaurant, with only the roads and landmarks you need to get there, the new Google Maps instantly changes to highlight information that matters most," Google said. The map will also get better as the user interacts more with it. "When you set your Home and Work locations, star favorite places, write reviews and share with friends, Google Maps will build even more useful maps with recommendations for places you might enjoy," it added.

Searching has been improved as well. Search results are now directly displayed on the map, each with complete descriptions and information. It can even display recommended places by your friends on Google+. The new Google Maps is still in beta, but Google is now accepting early users via invites on its new page.
