The Google Maps team announced new features and tools to make your excursion planning simpler. Starting from today, Whether you’re running weekend errands or planning a cross-country tour, you can plot multiple destinations for your trip with ease – now available for driving, walking and biking directions. Once you’ve chosen a starting point, click ‘+’ and add stops to your route by typing in the search box or clicking on the map.
In addition to this, Google also added the highly requested feature, the ability to find their flight, hotel, and restaurant reservations from within Google Maps. This info is available as long as you are signed into your Google account, accessing this info to help your planning process is very easy.
Last but not least, you can now view upcoming events by simply searching for a particular venue or theater.
All these features are currently rolled out to U.S. users and there is no word on when these changes will roll-out to the masses.
