Google Introduces My Places in Google Maps

The search giant is working hard to make its products as much improved to give tough time to its rival services. Google has recently included suggestions for your searches based on what you have searched before and where you are in its Google Maps. The company is now rolling out a new feature to its Google Maps named ‘My Places’, so as to let users locate the ones that are important to them in a seamless way.

To use this new feature, you have to sign into your Google Account. Once you logs into your Google Account, you will see the places that you have Starred, you have searched before, rated and even checked-in places. The new feature is very simple an easy to navigate and works absolutely seamlessly.

The search giant also states that if users want to delete the history, they can do so. However, you have to make certain that the history is being saved for you:

“These past directions and places will only appear for signed-in users who enable Web History. And like other items in My Places, it’s simple to remove any of the locations or directions via the drop-down arrow next to each item.”

Google Maps is very popular in France as they believe that the service is anticompetitive at the moment. If the people of France are so happy with the service, it is certain that majority of the people across the world use this service on regular basis. However, people who are conscious about privacy, there may be a slight concern, but that is not a big threat as you can work around Google’s tracking if to opt for. The company has also started to work as a mapping provider in China and it would be interesting to see how this and many other features get into work.
