Google Maps has a new feature that will allow users to share their location using Plus Codes. Google makes it easier for people to share addresses on Google Maps, even when you don’t have the address. Imagine getting stuck at a location you know nothing about, well the plus codes will now help you share your location. In other words, the Plus Codes are an alphanumeric version of your address.
Some of the addresses are very hard to find even when you share the exact location of a place. Sometimes you just don’t get there. Google has launched the Plus Codes to tackle situations like this. Announced way back in 2015, "Plus Codes are simple, easy to use digital addresses derived from latitude and longitude coordinates. They can be used to uniquely identify any location, from a rural home out on a prairie to a small shop stall on a nameless street”, as per Google blog.
With Plus Codes, users are not required to reveal their complete address, they can simply share the unique codes with either their delivery boy or their cab drivers.
People who are familiar with Google Maps can tap on the blue dot that shows their current location. To get the Plus Code of your location simply tap on the blue doth that denotes your address. Once you get the code, you can share it with anybody just like you share other stuff such as pictures or phone numbers. You can either search the code on Google Maps or Google Search it to reach the location, without having to type out the entire address. Read More...
