How often are you worried to find the right restaurant when at a new place? Google or Zomato is what we all go to but what if we tell you there is going to be another app to find the right place to eat nearby? Snapchat is partnering with The Infatuation, a restaurant review website to enable users to find the top local restaurants nearby via Snap Map.
From around the world, Snapchatters will now automatically see Infatuation reviews in Place Profiles in more than 50 cities around the world. The platform has been looking for ways to upgrade its usability of the platform and it will help people to figure out more reasons to use the app.

Last year, the photo-sharing platform introduced the Layers feature, which is a new way for Snapchatters to find things to do with their friends on Snap Map. In a statement, Snapchat stated: “Within just a few months, our first two Layers alone were used over 100 million times.”
With The Infatuation, Snapchatters in Austin, Chicago, New York, D.C, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Miami, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Denver, and London can use the Layer to find top Infatuation-approved restaurants nearby.
To use the Snap Map restaurant feature make sure the app is allowed to access your location and that you are using the latest version of the application. The feature is expected to roll out in other countries as well.
