Instagram has incorporated a ‘map search’ feature that allows users to find nearby places, such as restaurants, cafes or parks, taking into account its location, which will arrive first in countries such as Spain or Italy.
The feature extends the capabilities of the search bar to find “interesting places”, displayed with large icons on the map, based on the user’s location and the popularity of the establishments.
Searching on the map can be used directly in the navigation tab (or tab To explore), where the technology company has included a map icon in the upper right corner, as the company reported in a statement.
You can also do a search by ‘hashtag’. For example, when searching for the ‘hashtag’ #restaurant For a recommendation, the places published with that ‘hashtag’ are exposed on the search results page.
From Instagram they report that the search function on the map will be presented first in countries such as Spain, Greece, Italy and Portugal, but will be expanded to others in the future.
