Jun 08 2018 [Archived Version] □ Published at Geoawesomeness under tags  apple maps mapkit js maps

If you watched the WWDC keynote this year then you already know there wasn’t any major Apple Maps related announcement. However, one small development is that Apple is finally letting developers embed apple maps on any website. MapKit JS allows you to embed apple maps on your website, annotate points of interest and request for […]

Our much-loved childhood friend Winnie-the-Pooh always knew how to enrich our lives with pearls of wisdom, like: “You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” And to that, you would need to consult a map, because you must “Always watch […]

Google for Brazil: Technology that serves people's needs, wherever they may be

Jun 07 2018 [Archived Version] □ Published at Maps under tags  android arts & culture maps search

It's a constant challenge to ensure that technology works well for people with different needs around the world, especially where connectivity is limited and basic smartphones are the main gateway to the internet. Today, at our second annual Google for Brazil event in São Paulo, we shared updates on how we're making our products work better for people in Brazil—and elsewhere in the world. We also gave an update on our efforts to make the internet more inclusive, highlighting a new initiative in Brazil to empower women to succeed in a digital world.

New soccer experience on Search

Given Brazil's passion for soccer, we couldn't think of a better place to kick off an enhanced experience for football fans on Search, just in time for the World Cup. For this year's tournament in Russia, fans everywhere will be treated to a new immersive experience that includes group tables, stats, trending players and a host of other features that let you follow matches in real time and see highlights on your phone. For more about all that we've prepared for soccer fans, check out our World Cup post.

Android Go coming to Brazil

As an open source platform, Android has helped democratize access to the internet in places like Brazil. But for more people to come online, they need affordable smartphones that offer a smooth experience when browsing the web and using apps. That's why we developed Android Go, a lighter version of our OS optimized for entry-level devices. Android Oreo (Go edition) is now coming to Brazil on new devices made by our partners Positivo, Multilaser and Alcatel—an important step in our efforts to give more people access to computing.

Brazil elections on Search

2018 is an election year in Brazil, and we want to connect voters with useful and reliable information as they prepare to vote in October. In that spirit, we're planning features on Search that will allow Brazilians to stay up to speed on key dates, the candidates and other critical information about the election. We're also adding the option for presidential candidates to post statements directly on Google about where they stand on key issues. And on election day, you'll be able to keep track of the results on Search.

When the campaign kicks off in August, we'll roll out a Google Trends hub for Brazil that offers an overview of the race through the lens of Search. The hub will be a one-stop shop for data about search interest in candidates and their parties, the most searched questions and other related queries, all in real time.

More local Actions on the Assistant

We launched the Google Assistant in Brazilian Portuguese less than a year ago, and Brazil is now among the top three countries in daily active users. Portuguese is also the second most popular language for Assistant usage on smartphones.

Brazilians already use the Assistant to send WhatsApp messages, play music on Spotify, and watch videos on YouTube or Netflix. Now we’re working with more than 30 local partners to bring more Actions to the Assistant. In the next few months, Brazilians will be able to order a pizza with iFood, book a table with Restorando, hail a ride with 99 and do much more by using nothing but their voice.

Enhancing Maps for Brazilians

A new feature on Maps will help Brazilians navigate a São Paulo law that restricts motorists from driving in designated parts of the city during peak traffic hours one day a week. All they need to do is give the last number of their license plate and Maps will provide customized directions to avoid restricted areas.

We’ve also more than doubled the number of Brazilian cities on Maps with real-time transit information, to 15 from six. The list now includes cities like Campinas, Caxias do Sul, Uberaba and Campina Grande.

Art Selfie debuts in Brazil

Remember those fun selfies resembling famous artworks that went viral earlier this year? Well, now the Art Selfie is making its Latin American debut in Brazil. Brazilians can find an artistic match for their selfie in Google Arts & Culture's vast collection, which includes masterpieces from institutions such as São Paulo's Pinacoteca and Rio de Janeiro's Museu Nacional de Belas Artes. Give it a try on the Arts & Culture app.

Grow with Google

Grow with Google offers free training sessions, tools and events to help people grow their skills, career or business. We've taken Grow with Google to four cities in Brazil already, training 17,000 people, and plan to hit four more states by year-end.

A Grow with Google session for 3,000 people in Brasilia in May

Technology can also play a key role in helping to reduce gender inequality. That’s the thinking behind Womenwill, which aims to create economic opportunities for women. We brought Womenwill to Brazil in March, and since then more than 2,500 women have undergone training in leadership, negotiation techniques, personal finance and digital marketing.

While that's a promising start, there is much more to do. Today we announced a grant of $1 million for Instituto Rede Mulher Empreendedora, a Brazilian nonprofit that promotes and supports entrepreneurship among women. The grant will help them train up to 135,000 women in Brazil over the next two years.

We hope that each of the announcements we made today will have an impact on people's lives in one way or another. And we remain committed to bringing the transformational power of technology to people everywhere.

Keep track of all the GOOAAALS with Google

Jun 07 2018 [Archived Version] □ Published at Maps under tags  maps youtube

To help you kick off your FIFA World Cup™ watch-a-thon, Google has everything you need to keep track of what’s happening on and off the pitch. Here’s how Google can help you enjoy your football fan experience this year:

Stay in the know with Search

During the FIFA World Cup, you’ll find a new experience for exploring group tables, stats and trending players so you can keep track of the tournament, right on Search. Within 30 minutes of the end of each game, you’ll find video recaps from select broadcasters featuring goals and highlights of major match moments.
World Cup Search on Google

For each match, you can tap to watch live or follow along with score updates on your phone. You’ll also find a detailed timeline with updates including in-game moments, live images, stats, tweets and more. 

World Cup Timeline on Search

An example of the timeline you'll see once this year's tournament begins.

To keep track of all the matches, even when you’re not searching, you can pin real-time scores on your Android phone screen from Search on mobile browsers or from the Android Google App. Find the match you’re looking for, tap and drag to pin the match anywhere on your screen.

You can also get in on the action before kick-off by diving into line-ups, news and winning probabilities, which will update once the match gets going. Local broadcasters and national teams will share the latest highlights and updates via Posts on Google.

If your country is competing in the tournament, keep an eye out for a Google Doodlefrom a local artist. Football fans in select countries will also have a chance to check out the Doodles, and they will all be available as they are unveiled at

Assistant with the assist

Keep your eyes on the match and ask your Google Assistant for updates on all the World Cup action. If you want to find out who won the match between Germany and Mexico, which players have scored the most goals in this year’s quest for the Golden Boot, or how many FIFA World Cups Brazil has won, just say “Hey Google” and ask away! You’ll also get fun BTW (by the way) stats for some of your questions, so keep your ears open.

Follow along with Google News

Stay on the ball with all the FIFA World Cup action as it happens with a dedicated World Cup Tracker on your Google News app on Android.  The tracker will include a special “spotlight” feature that provides an easy way to visualize live scores, highlights, results, and schedules all in one place.

The feature will be available for users in the U.S., Germany, France, U.K., Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, and Colombia.

If you want to know which moments popped on the pitch and where fans are teeming with anticipation, head to our Google Trends page for an interactive, real-time view of FIFA World Cup searches. We will have special pages in different languages, in the U.S., FranceGermanyU.K.Brazil and many more.
