With more Social apps rolling out exciting features – Google Maps app is now a must have under your social apps checklist.
Google has just announced a new feature on their Google Maps app, which allows you to create lists of places, share your lists with others, and follow the lists your friends and family share with you.
Just like you want to share your favourite restaurant with your mate…or your chill spot with your friend.
Getting started is easy:
Simply open the Google Maps app and find that Coffee spot you’ve been wanting to try. Tapping on the place name and then the “Save” icon adds the place to one of several pre-set lists like “Want to Go” or “Favorites.” You can also add the restaurant to a new list that you name yourself, like “Finger Lickin’ BBQ.” To recall the lists you’ve created, go to Your Places (in the side menu) and then open the saved tab. Icons for the places you’ve saved to lists will appear on the map itself, so you’ll always know whether one of your must-try Coffee spots is nearby.
Google has made it easy for you to share the places via Text, Email, Social Networks and popular messaging apps.
Whenever friends and family come to town, tap the share button to get a link and start flexing your local knowledge muscles. Once you send a link to your out-of-towners, they can tap “Follow” to pull up the list from Your Places whenever they need it.
Here’s how it all works in real life:
