The COVID-19 pandemic has caused disruption to many people across cities, towns and villages, affecting things like livelihood and regular access to food. And with transport also being hit during the national lock-down, millions of migrant workers have started their journey from various cities across India towards their home, on foot. To help bring respite to people during this difficult time, Google Maps recently added a new feature that indicates the locations of food shelters and night shelters in cities across India. To make the feature super handy for people, Google is working closely with state and central government authorities to surface the locations of these relief centers. So far, a total of 30 cities have been covered and people can now find these locations on Google Maps, Google Search and Google Assistant. All that you need to do is, type in search - ‘Food shelters in ’ or ‘Night shelters in ’ in any city. The feature is also soon going to be available in Hindi where users would be able to put queries in hindi. The same queries can also be searched on a KaiOS Device in addition to Google Assistant and Google Maps. Other Indian languages will also be a part of the features in the coming weeks.
