Google Maps for Android gets updated with search history sync

Google has updated Google Maps to make it a little bit more useful and comprehensive. The new update syncs Google Maps search history throughout your devices. So now, when you search for something on your computer, the information that you searched for will also be available on your Android phone or tablet.

In order for the new search sync to work, you will need to make sure that you are signed into Google Maps and that you have web history enabled. Once you search for something on your Android device, you will automatically see suggestions for locations and directions that you previously searched for on your computer. \

While some might not see this small update as a big deal, it’s going to be very useful for those who are constantly using their phone and computer to look up directions and places on Google Maps.

To grab the update, head over to the Google Play store today.
