You can now use For You on iOS devices.


Google Maps can help you discover new places by way of its "For You" tab -- and now even more people will get to use it.

In a blog post, Google announced that it's rolling out the For You tab to iOS in 40 different countries, including the US, UK, Japan, Canada, Australia and parts of Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Before today, the feature was only available on Android.

The For You tab lets you follow certain neighborhoods or places you're interested in to get updates and recommendations from Google Maps. It's a good way to learn when a pop-up shop opens up or find out about new restaurants.

Google also announced that it's expanding the For You tab globally on Android by adding another 130-plus countries.

Update 10:45am PT: Added information about availability.
