Multi-waypoint directions feature is finally coming to Google Maps

Whether it’s off running errands around town or exploring a new city, your route probably takes you more than one place. 

But planning that in is kind of a pain, since there isn’t the capability to add in a multi-stop trip. This is finally getting fixed, however, according to screenshots that popped up on Police. 

The idea is you can plan out different “stops” along your route, which will definitely come in handy if you’re in unfamiliar terrain.

Unfortunately it looks like a server-side switch, as I grabbed the APK for version 9.31.2 and tried it on multiple devices but had no luck in triggering the feature. So it looks like you’ll just have to wait, but it’s worth ensuring you have the latest version from the Play Store. 

The impact on you: Google offers a lot of tools to help in your local and out-of-town adventures, but this is surely one that will be a real breakthrough for power users. Since the actual rollout is stuck in server purgatory, you’ll just need to keep trying and see when it actually materializes.
