My Maps lets you create custom maps to keep track of important places or travel routes. The app now has a brief tutorial that gives you an overview of the features to explore. Google also says the performance is much quicker thanks to under-the-hood improvements.
You’re also able to view photos, videos, and other locations you saved with any of the other Maps applications. It’s a pretty neat set of tools, and if you want to check it out you can download My Maps from the Play Store.
The impact on you: My Maps is a pretty handy service if you want to contribute to the Maps community or create a more permanent memory of a recent trip. Now that the app is back from the dead, it could be worth exploring to see if it could make for a useful component for your travel or just general commute planning.
