Google Maps is discontinuing a new feature that added calorie counts — in mini cupcake equivalents — to its walking directions.
The feature was apparently in the testing phase and drew criticism online for “shaming” users.
In a statement, Google said it has “rolled back this experiment based on strong user feedback.”
The feature should be disabled for all users by Tuesday evening, the statement said.
