It appears that Google might launch a new travel app soon. The company is inviting Maps explorers to try its new app for travellers. In the email it’s sending out, the company says that it’s going to introduce a new travel assistant app for Android and iPhone and that it’s going to provide select Level 2+ Local Guides a sneak peak before the launch.
Maps explorers are then directed towards a short survey that they have to complete. That doesn’t guarantee they will get the app before everybody else, Google is going to select who gets access and will then send them instructions on how to get the app starting next week.
The survey features a range of questions which include the operation system that explorer is using and whether or not they use Gmail, if they are going to take a trip soon and what kind of a trip it’s going to be.
It’s not that hard to become a Level 2 or higher member of Local Guide, this level can easily be achieved by submitting photos, answering questions and making corrections on Google Maps.
The rest of us will have to wait for a couple of weeks before we find out what Google’s new app is all about.
