Google Maps makes it easier to share your location



Google introduced Plus Codes in Maps back in 2015 in a bid to make it easier for people to find places that don't have a physical address or are simply difficult to find. Now, the company is making it easier for the Android users to share their location using Maps' Plus Codes.

To give you a brief about the feature, Plus Codes are simple and easy to use digital addresses that have been derived from the latitude and longitude of a users' location. These codes can be used to uniquely identify any location. They work in places that haven't been mapped and they don't use country codes to identify an individual's location.

The company launched this feature in India back in 2018 to enable Maps' users to share addresses. Now, the company is bringing an update to Google Maps that makes using this feature a tad bit easier.

How to find and share your Plus Code:

Step 1: Open Google Maps App.

Step 2: Find your exact location.

Step 3: Tap on the blue dot that highlights your location.

Step 4: Now you will see the Plus Code representing your location on top of the screen.

Step 5: Use Share your Location option to share your plus code.
