Google is introducing eight new features to make everyday tasks more accessible and faster.
The new features are for apps like Google Maps, Search, Assistant and some camera-based Pixel features.
These updates are specifically designed to cater to people with disabilities. Now, when a business chooses to identify as a passive property in their business profile, this attribute will appear on their listings in Maps and Search.
The second feature is for the visually impaired where Maps will have screen reader capabilities in Lens starting today on iOS, and later this year on Android. The third feature targets wheelchair users. Wheelchair users now have the option to request wheelchair accessible routes wherever data is available.
In addition, users can now customize their Assistant routines with additional functionality inspired by Action Blocks to retrieve useful information or automate everyday tasks.
Based on its existing feature in the Chrome address bar that detects typos and shows recommended websites based on what Chrome thinks you mean, it’s now available in Chrome on Android and iOS. is spreading
Finally, the Pixel’s camera can now step things up a notch and use the Guided Frame feature to take beautiful selfies. These features are helpful for the visually impaired.
