Google last month introduced ‘Your Timeline’ feature which was heavily based on the Google Maps service and was created to let users visualise ‘real-world routines’, trips of places and glimpses of locations where users visited. The new feature could be found in Google Maps app and Web interface, and essentially provided a more user-friendly view of the user’s location history with the ability to edit and delete.
Back in June, Google Maps rolled out the feature to send directions of any location to their Apple devices, right from the desktop. The Google Maps feature however required users to enable notifications on the mobile device. The option “sent from desktop apps” could be found within the notifications section of the Google Maps app for iOS.
