[Re] Google Maps Updated And Comes With A New Feature

The Google Maps being updated to version 9.4 brings a new feature of ‘Local Guides’, which is developed with the idea in mind to provide expert opinion about the area to the people using the service.Local Guides is similar to Yelp, in the sense that it gives local reviewers more benefits as they write more reviews.030cf19d-ff4b-49cf-8fe4-c6b507525c69

The rewards Google is giving out are not much but its still something. The list of rewards is as below:
