If you are a fan and lover of traveling, with Google Maps, you can create and share lists of your favourite places. This newly added feature will no doubt make the app more dynamic as users would like to create lists of “places they love and the places they want to recommend to friends” without quitting the application.
According to the statement from the company, “You can now create lists of places, share your lists with others, and follow the lists of your friends and family when shared with you.”
With the new features, you can recommend to your friends the best fashion boutiques, food, art and movie theatres around that particular area.
Available for both Android and iOS devices, the ‘Lists’ feature also allows the creation of a wishlist of places that one might want to visit in future. The company also said that the lists can be accessed offline as well to view and edit. “If you have offline maps downloaded, places added to the lists will appear on your offline map”.
To add a place to a list, users have to open ‘Your places’ in the side menu of Google Maps, open ‘Saved’, and click on the plus sign in the blue circle at the bottom right corner of the screen. Users can also add a place to a new list by tapping on ‘Save’, and then selecting ‘create a new list’ after opening the place in the Maps. To edit a list one has to open ‘Your places’ and tap the ‘Saved’ tab, tap on the three dot menu to the right of the list and then click ‘edit list’.
