Google Maps now lets you poll friends on where to eat

The Verge Wednesday, 26 September 2018
Google Maps now lets you poll friends on where to eatGoogle’s group planning feature for Google Maps, which the company first announced back at Google I/O 2018 in May, is now rolling out to users (via TechCrunch). The feature allows users to create a shortlist of restaurants or other destinations that can be shared with friends so they can vote, ceasing the endless planning messages that groups have to contend with.

You can use the feature by long-pressing each location to drag into a shortlist, which can then be shared with the friends you invite. The group will be able to see the relative locations of each destination in their app or browser, and they can vote with a thumbs-up or thumbs-down, and Google will keep score. Members of the group are also free to add their own suggestions.
