Google Maps for iOS and Android gets an update today that brings support to shareable lists of favorite places.


How to Make a Shareable List on Google Maps:

To try this new feature, first, update your Google Maps app. Next, search for a place on Google Maps and swipe up to view more information about it. Lastly, tap Save and it will bring up your lists including pre-made ones like Favorites and Want to go.

You can then add a new list like ‘Bucket list’ or ‘Good restaurants in the city’ . The list can then be shared which has its own web address. Your lists can be found in Your Places > Saved.


This has the potential to be a more convenient way of telling your friends your favorite places. Send them a link and they can easily see where those places are since it’s linked to Google Maps.
