Without any question, Google Maps has numerous features that are awesome and are meant to ease your life. Of all the features that you are supposed to use, there is one that sticks out…
If you have not yet implemented it at your work place or home, it is important that you do so. Once you combine this simple trick with another one that is mentioned below, you will crank up your navigational efficiency by a number of notches.
To set the feature, access Google Maps and type home in the search box. Do not press Enter. A pop up for setting a new address will appear when you click on Set Location. It will ask for your home address upon which you will input and you will be right away done!
Use the same steps so as to set a Work location, only this time round you will type work instead of home.
In addition, if you are using Google Maps on Android, the Work and Home locations will be great if combined with voice command tricks. For instance, you can just say:
“Ok Google, navigate to Work.”
Your smartphone will launch Google Maps and use the directions to work place. You need no effort, just seat back and speak. Boom!
Something to note is that Home and Work addresses are likely not to work in case you enable Lite Mode in Google Maps.
