There is a new feature for Google Maps users on iOS, something that has been around for users of desktop and Android users.
It’s called Timeline, and it was first rolled it out in the summer of 2015.
Timeline helps to track all the places you’ve visited over a specific period of time. It’s a bit like what you can do via check-in platforms like Yelp and Facebook, but Timeline for Google Maps isn’t requiring a check-in action.
Users will be able to revisit places they’ve visited via a new tab in the Google Maps menu. Google will add a note to the place cards of locations that they have visited before, but the note will not be available to the public, just the user. Timelines even allows users to edit and/or delete the locations they’ve visited.
There’s an option to subscribe to a monthly email in which Google will summarize all the places you’v visited.
