Google Maps Makes Planning Group Outings Simpler

Google has added a tool to Google Maps that simplifies the process of planning group get-togethers. Google says a long press on any destination adds it to a shortlist, which appears as a floating bubble on the side of the screen. After adding several places, the organizer can then share the list with friends through any messaging platform. Each person in the group will then be able to view the list, as well as add or remove locations and vote on the final destination. The new group meeting feature will appear in the Google Maps app for Android and iOS this week.
