Google Maps has gotten a new feature, you can now create and save locations and also share them. Well this feature isn’t new, earlier in 2017, location sharing was enabled for the masses on android and iOS but not the web-based Google Maps. Google launched a feature allowing users to create and share lists of places. However, only Android and iOS users were able to set up these lists, and web-based Google Maps users were limited to just seeing them. Now it has been released for the web based Google Maps.
To Create and Save on
You’ll find the process to create and share list of your locations on the web version of Maps is similar to the mobile experience and quite easy to do:
Find a place of interest on Google Maps, click on the “Save” icon in the left pane, and add the place to an existing list or start a new one.
To share your List of Places.
Click on the Hamburger menu, then click on “Your places”, you’ll see your lists of loactions under the “Saved” tab. From there, you can grab a shareable link to a list, or share it to Google+, Facebook, or Twitter. You can also choose whether to make your list private, shared, or public
The community of Local Guides on Google Maps was given early access to create lists on their Android and iOS smartphones way back in August 2016, though it lacked a way to share them. If you’re interested in getting first looks at new Maps features, consider becoming a Local Guide.
