Earlier this year, Google redesigned Maps to add a bunch of features, including personalized suggestions based on your tastes and interests. Now, that feature will be more broadly available as Google is bringing the For You tab to iOS in more than 40 countries, and more than 130 additional nations on Android.

The feature can provide you with news and updates on events, activities, openings, pop-ups and even menu changes in neighborhoods, restaurants and stores you follow. It also suggests new places for you to check out.

The update is rolling out today, and it follows the arrival of the Group Planning feature in September, which helps you and your friends decide where to have dinner or hang out using a simple voting system. The move also seems to be part of a broader effort by Google to bring more Android- and Pixel-first features to iOS.
