Google Maps Gets Search Suggestions

The list of suggestions that pops up whenever you enter text into the Google search bar has just been added to Google Maps, Google announced today.

The feature, which has been in testing in Germany, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, has been added to 10 more domains in 8 additional languages and should make searching for places that much easier.

As usual with Google these days, the search and the suggested search terms are tailored to your location. The example given in Google’s blog post is “Mandela”, which in San Francisco comes up with a number of geographically relevant results and in London comes up with a completely different set of results.

The search suggestion will be available beginning today in China, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, United States and the United Kingdom.
