There is a new list-making feature that Google Maps has added that allows users to save locations to a specified list so that I can be accessed later and shared with others, even offline.
In order to save a location in Google Maps, users can tap on its name and then the “Save” icon to add it to a list. Lists of saved places can be organized under preset lists Google has already named, like “Want to go” or “Favorites.” Users will be able to create a new lists as well.
According to Google, lists can be shared by text and email, on social networks and via popular messaging apps.
From the Google Maps Blog:
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.
The following video was posted by Google to demonstrate how the new feature works:
