Starting today, Google Maps' new feature "Lists" will help you mark out the places you love and the places you want to recommend to friends.
Users can save places to previously created lists like "Want to Go", "Favorite", or create their own like "For Girls Night", "Restaurant Tour 2017", or "Summer Vacation".
Whether you're looking for places to go for a date, or uncovering the best ramen eateries in your city, you can now save an extra step by making lists directly in Google Maps. From there, any place you've saved to a list will show up as an icon on your map, which should make it easier to check if you're near any cool spots you've been meaning to check out. And with a public link, you can share across social media sites to send them to your followers or members of said community. You'll need the latest update to Google Maps to be able to create lists. Other users can "follow" these lists to have access to them on their own devices later on. The lists will be under the saved tab (just scroll to the right once).
All of us love to share our experiences about places we've visited and things to do and see with our friends or family.
Google Maps just introduced a feature that should have been implemented a few years ago. In addition, you can also follow lists created and shared by your contacts.More news: Romanian Minister Quits Amid Protests
How do you create a Google list?
To add a restaurant, museum or shop to a list, tap the save button that pops up when you click on a location. For casual users, Maps may now be all that's needed to keep track of future destinations, continuing its evolution beyond pure mapping. The update should be rolling out today to users on both iOS and Android.
Separating "places of interests" into even more specific categories is efficient, especially if you're trying to familiarize yourself with your neighborhood.
Starring important places in Google Maps is a convenient feature that has been around for a while, but now Google is expanding it to make Maps more social.
