Google Maps Update Finally Adds Multi-Waypoint Directions


Google Maps has received a major update just in time for the summer travel season.

The latest version of Google Maps introduces two new features, with the main one being multi-step directions. It’s a feature that many users have been clamoring for, allowing them to set multiple destinations for one route. Users will also be able to rearrange the order of the stops in the multi-step route, and once they enter navigation mode they will enjoy a seamless driving (or walking) experience to their destination.

The other feature allows users that use Google Maps with Location History enabled to open Your Timeline, select a date from their recent vacation or everyday life and add notes to help remember what they did that day, or save important notes for later.

The Google Maps update is currently available for Android device users and will be heading to iOS platforms soon.
