You can now get directions to multiple destinations from Google Maps

30 June, 2016 Google


Do you use Google Maps? If you do, then you must have felt at some point while navigating with its help that it would have been great if the app could direct you to the nearest gas station while en-route to your office. Well, we won't have to wait for that any longer as Google finally adds the ability for a user to add multiple stops while setting a destination in the Google Maps (v9.31) app.


What this means is that swinging by that pizza shop or the pharmacy while going back home from work should now be even easier because Google Maps will point you in the right direction and show you more options for you to choose from while setting the waypoints and the destination. The best part is, that there's no limit on the number of stops that you can set in between your starting point and your final destination.



In order to add waypoints, set a destination first and then select Add Stop from the overflow menu. Once you have set them, the order in which you want to reach each stop can also be rearranged by holding and dragging the waypoints. The stops themselves will appear as letters of the English alphabet. It should be noted though that this feature has been a part of the desktop version for a long time now and it is a bit surprising that it took Google so long to bring it to Android devices.
