Raining season could mean traffics, some unforeseen roadblocks, and delays. Commute planning becomes even more crucial.  With the latest update to Google Maps, we're introducing two new features to get you where you’re going and help you remember your travels in a brand new way. 

Commuters  can now get multi-stop directions in Google Maps on Android (coming soon to iOS). Just open the app, enter a destination, tap the corner menu, and then click “Add a stop”. To rearrange the order of your stops, tap and hold the three dot menu to the left of “Add stop” and drag it to the position you want – you can even search for types of places like gas stations or restaurants like you normally would. Once you’ve added all your stops, tap “Done” and your multi-stop route is complete. When you enter navigation mode you’ll have the same seamless driving experience you’re used to, whether you’re going from errand to errand or hitting scenic spots along beautiful beaches. 

A lot of the fun of traveling is the memories created while exploring new places with friends, family or even solo. Pictures are a traditional way to remember those moments, but now Your Timeline users on Android can preserve their travel memories and info in a new way. Google Maps users with Location History enabled can open Your Timeline, select a date from their recent vacation or everyday life and add notes to help remember what they did that day—or save important notes for later. 

No matter where you go this raining season and beyond, , these new Google Maps features will get you there and help keep track of all the memories you make along the way.
