Google Maps is about to change the way you organize your world – BGR

Google has announced a new feature to its Google Maps app: lists of locations in Your Places. This feature currently consists of three starter lists, Favorites, Want to go and Starred places, and allows users to add other lists as desired. Currently available only to Level 4+ Local Guides, Google expects this new addition to Your Places to be available to regular users of Google Maps sometime in the next few months.

Key Takeaways:

  • With the new feature, Maps users will be able to create lists of locations in the Your places section by tapping on the “+” symbol at the bottom of the screen.
  • Only Google Local Guides at level 4 or higher have been given access to the feature, and based on the invite they received, regular Google Maps users won’t see lists any time soon.
  • “We’re rolling out lists to Level 4+ Local Guides on Google Maps for Android over the next week – months before we launch to the public.”
