Download the maps to use them whenever you want
Everyone knows that Google Maps can be used offline as well, but many times people feel lost if it is not the tech giant Google who encourages you to download an area. To solve this, we simply have to position ourselves where we want to download the map and write in the bar above: “Ok Maps”.
Search the stores of a shopping center
Google Maps can also guide you to more specific areas such as shopping centers and their stores. What you have to do is open Google Maps inside a shopping center, and it will simply show you all the stores of that shopping center, as well as specific places like Customer Service and toilets as well. Moreover, it can also guide you to navigate between the different floors as well.
Travel with Google thanks to Local Guides
Yes, you can travel with Google and to do this, simply you have to register in Google Local Guides, and to get points and raise levels, simply you have to put opinions on sites, reviews, or photographs.
To get a trip with Google you have to reach level 5, which takes a lot. As there are people who have got it by reviewing monthly for 5 years. In the other levels, there are also rewards like free space in Google Drive as well.
Search special places near your route
Many times, we are already on the road to somewhere, and we need to go through a special place like a restaurant, bar or gas station. For this, simply we have to search Google Maps, where it will simply leave a series of recommendations among which we have to look for the nearest option.
Review where you have been
As with this awesome option, you can simply review where you have been, simply entering the Google Maps and then select the Location History from the side menu, that’s it.
Remove the notice of “Little traffic in your area”
By removing this option, of course, “Little traffic in your area” we can get rid off this annoying notification that comes out on Android that there is little traffic in our area.
Look at the traffic near your area
When going to a route, the tech giant Google tells us how long we take and what traffic there is. But all we want is to know what traffic near us, in the center or in an exact part, we just have to click on the “Go” button and without writing anything, we will get the option “See the traffic in our area”.
Edit the streets in Google Maps
This is one of the well-known and new tricks of Google Maps, with which anyone can easily edit the streets or routes that we want in the mobile device.
See when a locality or area is full
When it comes to seeing a place in Google Maps, if we move the file and see its hours, address and all the information, we can see how full it is right now. But if we select the day that comes out, we can easily choose the day we want and see how full it is.
Get direction for multiple locations
Do you want to drop your friend to the home on the way to your office? Then don’t worry, as now you can add multiple stops in your journey at once. And to use this feature just you have to set up your direction from point A to point B, then simply tap on the three dots at the top right corner of the maps and then choose Add to stop option, as here you can simply add as many stops you want between your journey.
