With the aim of making Google Maps a more useful tool, Google recently announced that the new Google Maps provides support for a much requested feature: directions for multiple locations.

For the past three months lots of people have been using the new Google Maps preview. If you want to be part of this preview, you can get started by following this link. Why would you want to start exploring the new Google Maps? Here are a few reasons:
  • The entire map is interactive, thus allowing you to discover more by clicking on locations.
  • Multiple modes of transportation are compared, thus helping you find the best way to get from point A to point B.
  • Google Earth features are integrated into the map. On WebGL-enabled browsers, you don’t need a plugin anymore.

As I was saying at the start of the article, lots of people have been testing the new Google Maps. After taking a look at their feedback, Google noticed that directions for multiple locations was one of the most requested feature. So the company decided to give the people what they want.

“Based on your input, we’re pleased to announce one of your most requested features – directions for multiple destinations – will begin rolling out today,” announced on Wednesday, Florian Goerisch, Product Manager, GoogleMaps.

“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,” added Florian Goerisch



Say you’re planning a trip to London. Explore the city with Google Maps, plot a route to the museums and historic squares you want to visit, arrange the destinations in the order you want by dragging and dropping them.
