    re: Google I/O 2013 - Google Local and Maps Updates

    Google Maps: Into the Future is the big session coming up today at 12:45 PST where I bet some big new announcements will be made. Probably the new maps update we've been talking about, maybe even the new Places search and/or the local carousel test/update we’ve been discussing will be revealed today. And who knows, maybe lots more. So stay tuned!

    Google Maps and the Maps API enjoy huge popularity around the world. The Google Maps API is the most used API on the web. maps.google.com is the most used mapping site. Android and iOS SDKs are branching Maps out into new platforms. In this session, the Product Management Director of Google Maps teams with the Product Manager for the Google Maps API and the lead Developer Advocate to walk you into the future of Google Maps.

    They are talking G+ now so I just tuned in to see if anything new is announced.

    They just announced free group video. But I missed part of it. It looked cool!

    Now they are talking Google as your darkroom for your photos. Your photos + Google's cloud.

    "New Hangouts bring your conversation to life with photos, emoji, and video calls."

    "Using the power of Google’s cloud, we’re redefining your online Google+ Photos experience with a set of features aimed at improving your photos automatically, based on your camera."


    Massive storage, free storage expanded, new image editing tools, etc.

    I'm going to try to listen in the background so I don't miss anything.

    Improving the knowledge graph...

    Ask Google re your restaurant reservation, travel plans and other conversation search queries, will be coming to desktop.

    Plus "Hot Wording" VOICE SEARCH - even on desktop via chrome.

    Ask Google "what time does my flight leave" and Google voice REPLIES BACK.

    Or ask Google "show me pics from my New York vacation last year" and she pulls them right up!

    Google Now will even except and record voice reminders or send emails via voice!

    I missed the beginning but the new Google Earth view seems pretty wild! There was a URL to go to to sign up for an invitation. If you caught it, can you share it in this thread?

    **Edit** Nevermind, here it is: this page
