The new My Places tab on Google Maps, unveiled today helps you quickly view and interact with your saved maps, starred locations, and rated businesses.
“My Places tab replaces the My Maps tab in the Google Maps toolbar. Items are organized by date with your most recent activity at the top, and filters make it easy to sort and view only your maps, starred locations or rated places. And of course, you can still create and share personalized My Maps through the “Create new map” link,” explains Google.
“My Places also simplifies your ability to manage the locations that make up your personalized maps experience. Using the drop-down arrow next to each location in your list, you can easily delete any of your saved maps, stars or Google Places ratings.” These personalization changes will automatically be synchronized across all other Google properties including Google Places, Google Maps, and Google Maps for mobile.
To use My Places, you’ll need to sign in with your Google account.
Try it now: visit Google Maps and click the My Places tab to access and organize the places you care about.
