Navigation apps have transformed the way people travel, making it easier to get from point-A to point-B! It's hard to believe anyone ever really used a traditional paper map to travel. Well, just when we thought it couldn't get any easier, Google Maps is now using fast-food restaurants to give you detailed directions.
So instead of giving you specific street names, which it will continue to do if there are no restaurants nearby, it will direct you in a certain direction along with the name of the nearest eatery.
For example, Google Maps will says: "Turn left after the Chick-fil-A." I don't know about you guys, but I think this will be so incredibly usefu! Street signs aren't always the easiest to read, but fast food signs are!
It seems it took many users by surprise! Check out some of their hilarious Tweets:
Google Maps confirmed that it is using fast-food restaurants as landmarks because drivers will find it more natural, since many people give directions using obvious landmarks rather than mentioning street names.
So far the roll out has not been nationwide, and Google did not say whether the feature would become permanent or be released to a wider audience, Food & Wine reported.
