Google Maps to soon allow users to search places using hashtags

San Francisco : Google has released support for hashtags on Maps for Android devices that would help users to discover recommended as well as new places.

The company confirmed support for hashtags rolled out globally on Android devices, TechCrunch reported late on Monday.

The search-engine giant suggests that users can add up to five specific and useful hashtags per review and place them at the end of the review to make the text easier to read. “Google says that general terms like #love or #food won’t be helpful,” the report added.
