Greetings from Mi Community Bangladesh Tech Team. If you’re looking for a restaurant or coffee shop to go to, Google Maps now reminds you to wear your mask before leaving your house. Tech giants Google have been constantly providing information from health authorities regarding ways to help curb the spread of COVID-19 as well as reminders to practice the minimum health standards amid the pandemic.
Now, Google is rolling out a new feature in Maps that gives some health safety tips to users when they go out to public places. The feature reminds people to wear a mask outside their homes, especially in public hubs where the chance of contracting or transmitting the virus is high. It's found within the "Explore" tab, where a banner tells users: "Wear a mask, Save lives." It also has a neat little animation of a woman putting on her mask appropriately to cover both her mouth and nose. Under that banner, there's a small button that links to Google's Coronavirus website, providing more information about COVID-19.
This new “Wear a Mask” banner appears on Google Maps above the “Explore” section of the app, which lists nearby restaurants, bars, hotels, and attractions. It’s a good place for the message, frankly, as it gives a reminder before users leave their homes.
Currently, the feature seems to be live only for users in the U.S. There's no official word whether this will be rolled out widely. Also, the reminder appears to be available only on Android for now.
