Adding yet another dimension to its Maps service, Google has rolled out a new feature that will let users create lists of places that can be saved and shared with others. Then, tap on the place's name and on the "Save" icon to add the place to one of the pre-set lists like "Favorites" or "Want to Go". Once you've created a list of various destinations, you'll be able to access it through the hamburger menu under the Your Places section. From there, any place you've saved to a list will show up as an icon on your map, which should make it easier to check if you're near any cool spots you've been meaning to check out.
As users create lists, they can share them with others via email, social networks and more.
To create and share lists of places to go, update to the latest version of the Google Maps app. This is great news because you now can share the places you want to visit with friends and family.
Users will now be able to make these lists by pressing the "Save" option which appears at the details page of a location.
Lists can be built around a specific event ("Spring Break" or "Portland trip 2017") and include all the places you want to hit up.

Google Maps is about to get a whole lot more social. The update was extended to both the Android and iOS platforms today.
Some example lists that Google Maps' employees shared included child-friendly locations in Tokyo, and what to do on a weekend trip to Munich. First we got in-app Uber hailing, then a parking availability feature that helped us plan ahead for places that don't have dedicated spaces.
Last week, Google Maps began offering in-map views of nearby available car-hails as well as background on planned destinations, including reviews, articles, restaurant menus.
