The results are beyond imagination, as the searches appear after putting a query in the search engine. With the integration of AI, there will not be only links in the search results, but whole new conversational answers.
Not only that, the user will be able to ask further questions and get instant answers on the search results page. That is going to make a significant change in the use of a search engine.

However, it is currently in the testing mode and not publicly available. But, if you wanna test it out, you may get into the waitlist by signing up and using this feature.

Google Maps is my favorite application it is quite useful when you are going to a new place and not familiar with the surroundings. This can also save you some money if you are visiting a new place and wanted to hire a cab or use a taxi. With Google Maps, you can know about the distance, area, and timing to reach your location.
With this in mind, a super useful and impressive new update is coming to Google Maps soon. This new update will add a bunch of new features to this app.
Usually, when we plot a route in this app, we get a guide to reach our location in a straight line. It also gives you the details about the traffic on the road. But with this new update, you will get a 3D flyover of your route, unlike the previous plan road vision, you will get a birds-eye view.
Additionally, the weather and air quality information will also be available in the app.
