Google has been making some extensive changes to it’s Maps platform along with new features for it’s apps that run on Apple’s iOS and Google’s own Android OS.

Along with one of the changes that has made global attention, is a feature that will allow Food photography to be pinned to restaurants and bars across the world.

Providing the photos follow Google’s user content policy and the subject is deemed interesting to other people, those with level 3 or higher “local guide” status on the website will be invited to snap pictures of meals and drinks.

Local Guide status is granted to those on Google who have managed to write 50 or more reviews of venues and places of interest which are displayed in searches on the giant’s website.

The concept has been rebirthed from an earlier program that Google was running called Tablescape.
