In the I/O demo, it was a cartoon fox bounding in front of you to show you the right direction, but honestly, this seems like a potential reincarnation of Clippy, the much loathed assistant that's thankfully been purged from Microsoft's Office apps.

Google Maps to act more like a tour guide.

Instead of relying on an unclear blue dot while walking around a cluttered city, Google suggests this camera-fueled augmented reality interface may one day save the day. First is "For You", which will automatically show you information about places in the areas that are important to you, things such as new businesses, restaurants that are trending, or recommendations of things to do that match your preferences.

English Premier League: Matchday 37 Saturday lineup
For Bournemouth , a first win in six games ensured it will definitely have a fourth successive season in the top flight. We expect Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal to play for the draw and we're backing the Portuguese manager to get it.

At the Google I/O developer conference on Tuesday, Google unveiled a number of updates to Google Maps, offering a richer and more personal experience for users. Since launch, Google has mapped over 220 countries and territories and is helping more than 1 billion Maps users.

It's these match scores that are the most interesting, since it's basically Google's own algorithms telling you how it thinks you'll like a particular place.

And finally, expect to see a new "For You" tab that rounds up all of those personalized recommendations.

Adding the essence of a social network, Google Maps will soon incorporate a new group planning feature that lets users create shareable shortlists making it easier to coordinate plans with friends and family.

It was also announced that Google Lens will be integrated into the Camera application on future Android Phones and that it will be able to read words when the phone is held up to them.

In order to make this possible, GPS alone lacks the precision needed, so Google have been working on implementing a new system, referred to as VPS, or the Visual Positioning System. In doing so, it helps you figure out which way you should go.

Adele says she "adores" Childish Gambino and praises his "greatness"

It will also give you a sense of how close a match something is with what's called "Your Match", a score that measures how close a match of a business or place is.
