Google Adds its own Plus Codes to Maps Location Sharing on Android


Google revealed its Plus Codes on Maps in 2015 in an effort to reinvent coordinates and addresses on Google Maps. The Plus Code itself is a short alphanumeric code, combined with a city and country which makes it easier to locate a particular location or place even if they don’t actually have addresses.

Now, with the latest update to Google Maps, the tech giant is making it easier for people to share their location via their Android phone using Plus Codes. You just have to tap the blue dot representing where you’re at, and this can be shared directly through any app you can copy-and-paste to.

If you’re looking to share another location, hold and press on the map location, and you’ll get a Plus Code for that location too. This feature will be rolled out on Google Maps to everyone over the next coming weeks.
