Google Maps is one of the most used mapping and navigation solution worldwide, and probably the best right now. However, Google isn’t stopping to make it even better. Now, you can search for directions to a particular place on desktop and send them instantly to your mobile device, a very useful feature, isn’t it?
Google has announced that users can now push directions instantly from a Chrome web browser on their desktop to their Android smartphone. To use this feature, users should use Google Maps from Chrome web browser on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, or Chrome OS, and search for the destination from the browser’s omnibox field. After the search results arrive, users can see ‘Send directions to my phone’ option under it. They can just click it to send directions to their Android smartphone which is registered using the same Google account.
This feature will be very handy when you search for directions while browsing from your desktop at home or office, and want to send it to your Android smartphone just before starting for the searched destination.
