The Timeline on Google Maps, which helps users quickly revisit the things done and the visited places of the past rather than some guesswork on Android and desktop—is starting Tuesday, available to users on iOS as well.

Google is also providing additional control and customization of the information that appears in Timeline. With this, users are now allowed to edit any location, delete a day, a date range, or full history at any time.

In addition, you can also customize your modes of transportation and activities—from surfing to snowshoeing to horseback riding through newly added variety of activity types.

Timelines can now be access from the place cards of locations or businesses previously visited—so if you visit say, "Point Reyes National Seashore today, the dates of your past visits will appear on place card (only visible to you)—and from there, just tap directly into 'Your Timeline' you can get dates and details of your visits and rediscover the experience," Google eplained.

Additionally, you can now receive monthly emails summarizing the cities, countries, and places you've visited. Just open the settings tab from 'Your Timeline,' and toggle "Timeline emails" on or off—to manage these email settings.
