the Google It just updated its popular navigation app, which is Google Maps, with a very convenient feature. Going into detail, users can now save locations they’ve visited, are going to visit, or just generally want to mark on their maps and display them with custom icons. For example, one can save all their favorite cafes with a coffee emoji and they will appear with them on the map, for quick access at a glance.
In the past, the saving feature only allowed for five different categories, so many users typically don’t sort their locations, just star them. Google’s new feature allows for much better organization and management, adding a more personal touch to everyone’s maps.
The feature is now available to everyone and below you can find detailed instructions as well as an image published by Google itself that shows how you can transform your maps using it.
New update: You can now personalize your saved places with emojis to help you find your favorite locations faster 🌮☕️🍦🍔
