Google Maps allows to add icon to your places now

Sometimes, you may have been wishing if I could add my treehouse or farm house to Google Maps. So others peoples can find these places easily. Now your wish turns out to be reality, Today Google announced ability to add icons to your places. You can now customize your Home and Work address and also you can add sticker as well.


According to the Google blog:

“Home and work are not the only places you can label in Google Maps. For example, if you look up the best route to avoid traffic on your way to your kid’s school, or to see when the next bus is coming to get to your friend’s house for your favorite sitcom every Thursday, or the gym on Mondays and Wednesdays, you can now label these places for quick access to directions, traffic conditions, best routes and more.”

“To save home and work addresses and other destinations, just make sure you’re signed into your Google account. Then visit the Your Places tab or type an address, then label it. Once setup, you can just type “home”, “work” or “gym” in the search bar to get directions and navigate quickly and easily from wherever you are.”
