Maps v9.12 adds the & laquo; your Chronicle & raquo; and user names of your locations

It would seem that an updated app a week ago much detail is displayed where you are, where you’ve been and where are going. But a few days ago, after the update to Google Play Services version 7.8, Maps has received a number of new features aimed at the history of your locations. Now we can look back through the history of their «adventures»Reviewing the places we visited when we were last in separate locations, as well as routes, which we enjoyed. Just from Google Maps got several functions of personalization that will make our place a lot more accessible.

What’s New?

There was a section called «your Chronicle»Which displays detailed history of the places you have visited. Unlike the previous section history «Chronicles» It shows not only the location itself, but also the rate at which you are going.

Screen «your Chronicles» It displays the time spent in a particular place and how you can move between certain locations. If the images were taken along the way – they are also displayed on the timeline.

To switch between the days just select the appropriate option in the options bar, or simply swipe left or right on the timeline. This is not only handy if you suddenly find some cozy restaurant, but when you need to provide an alibi jealous girlfriend or a jealous boyfriend.

If Google tries to randomly display the place for you – the data can easily be adjusted or removed. It is also possible to pause recording «Chronicles» and resume it later.

Custom name

Another interesting innovation is the ability to assign their own «nicknames» places that you visited. In theory, this would provide a more convenient search more recognizable names, but, unfortunately, the function does not work as we would like. User name is not displayed in the search results, and it is similar to the display «saved places»But with a higher position in the list.

While this is all the features that could be found in the updated Google Maps, but I hope we will soon be able to please you with a few more finds.
