Google Maps update will bring option for Local Guides to answer questions in exchange for points

Local Guides
Google’s integration of their Local Guides reviewer program into Maps is in full flight, with Google this morning advising guides that they’ll soon be able to answer question in exchange for points.

The update which will roll out to Google Maps for Android first (iOS coming soon), will add a new option to answer simple yes/no questions about your local haunts based on your location history. Answering questions in the ‘Contribute’ tab will earn you points towards earning bonuses and rewards.

No date for the rollout has been given, but it seems to be destined for the next version so keep an eye out when next Google Maps updates.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
