Steps to reproduce:
Search for "!gm pizza"
Get google maps search results for "pizza"
** Actual behaviour**:
I get redirected to https://www.google.com/maps/place/pizza/ which seems to look for the place called "Pizza" which doesn't exist.
DuckDuckGo instead redirects to https://maps.google.at/maps?hl=de&q=pizza which properly displays the search results.
Works for me, you can click on the search bar but your suggestion is also understandable. Please add this!
insomnia-creator Your video reproduces the issue the OP is commenting on. They don't expect the bang to go to /maps/places, they expect it to go to the base /maps endpoint and perform a search. Edit: video removed
Yes, we should be matching DDG's behavior.
