The most obvious changes are the overhauled cards with rounded corners and pill shaped buttons in place of the conventional rectangular buttons with rounded corners.

The main update comes in form of the new Explore section, which apart from the new cycle icon to explore places by groups, gets a brand new carousel of images for picking restaurants along with other restaurants based on their preference and target audience.
