Keep asking "what activities can be done when it rains", the answer received will be suitable for activities in shaded areas for example movies or theater. Then users can continue to ask "Activities for the whole family", Google Maps will suggest bowling and more. The answers given are also accompanied by other people's comments as well as other activities that can be done in the same location.

Other examples are; “Brunch places nearby”, “Outdoor activities suitable for tough people like me”, or “fun places to hang out with friends”. This feature will also be widely introduced to all users after it is stable enough for public use.
