    My Android version is 5.1.1, installed on a Samsung Galaxy Tab E tablet. The "Explore This Area" button appears when I do some location searches, but I can't find it for most other locations.

    I have an Explore button in Maps - Settings, but it may not be available for some versions, not cover some areas, or not work on wifi only tablets.

    Thanks for your reply. I don't have such a button on my tablet. On my Android version, "Explore This Area" and a gear icon appear automatically at the bottom of the screen for most locations, but the feature is not working for others. It may be a bug. I've reported it to Google, so there's at least a slim chance I'll hear something back.

    I would imagine they depend a lot on user input and recommendations.

    I have that Explore on my maps also. I came back to a Moto G 2013 on 5.1.1 while I get my X Style screen fixed, and it started to tell me I have a Beta version of Maps. That may have updated now. Version below.
