Google Maps and Google Calendar team up in the latest update. All to make it easier to get where you need to go!
Zach Maier, product manager Google Maps: “To ensure that your events appear on Google Maps, enter the address in the “Where” box when you create an event in Google Calendar. As long as you’re signed into both Google Calendar and Google Maps, the next time you open Google Maps you’ll see your Google Calendar events right there on the map. We’ve also introduced a new “Upcoming” tab where you’ll see a list of your upcoming events. Simply open the sidebar menu, tap “Your Places” and then tap “Upcoming.” If you don’t want to see specific events on the map, you can hide them by tapping on the event from the map and then tapping ‘Dismiss’. “
Take a look at a list of Google Maps features that help you personalize your experience so you can see important information where it matters most.
