Google Maps ditches misleading walking calorie counter
19 October, 2017, 00:26 | Author: Darrell Baldwin
The feature, which started arriving for some iOS Maps users about a week ago, showed the number of calories someone would burn if they chose to walk a short route.
The feature was designed around encouraging users to be more active by displaying how many calories could be burned by walking to a chosen destination. "One mini cupcake is around 110 calories", stated the app. It merely appeared on the Google Maps app for some iOS users last week, to the delight of many who said it could help promote a healthier lifestyle.
Google Maps is removing its automatic calorie estimates that were tied in with mini cupcakes. "Oh my god and if you click walking directions it auto tells you how much food you'd burn off what the fuck", Lorenz proclaimed.
As it turns out, Wednesday is National Chocolate Cupcake Day in the U.S. Those who are easily triggered should not click on this link because it contains pictures of handsome, delectable cupcakes. Or Google could embellish the feature to take into account details about the user's health, including general factors like age, weight, and gender.
Others noted, however, that other mapping apps have long had similar features (though not with the whole cupcake aspect). A number of people lambasted the feature on Twitter, claiming it would "shame" and even "trigger" those with eating disorders. Some people may appreciate it but there are those who think it is very judgmental.
In addition to the potentially harmful side effects of the feature, as the Washington Post points out, Google's measurements of both calories burned and calories per cupcake were questionable. The feature was pulled Monday night, and Google confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it was removed in direct response to the negative feedback. "If people want to count their calories then they should be given the option to do this, rather than it being enforced".
