Google Maps Offers Sneak Peak At Rio Olympic Venues

Google has launched an update to Google Maps, that allows users to visit the venues of the upcoming Rio Olympics. Around 500,000 foreigners are expected to visit Brazil in the summer, and Google have aimed to make the maps as useful as possible for visitors. The content is accessible through either your phone or desktop and includes full maps of all the venues, that include toilets, different floor levels and information desks amongst other features. Users can also enter the venues virtually and use the newly implemented 360-degree view of some of the events venues, including the Maracanã Stadium in Rio. This new feature comes not long after a real-time transit information update was added to the app, for the host city.
