Google Maps let users create Lists of favorite places to share with families and friends in new update.

Google Maps is getting more social thanks to an update that is yet to be published to Google Play Store. Google announced in a blog post that their maps app will soon let users save and share places they have been to with families and friends. All that is needed is for users to tap on the place name and "Save" to add the place to built-in lists like "Want to Go" or "Favorites. Users can also create their own. Once done, Google says that "to recall the lists you've created, go to Your Places (in the side menu) and then open the saved tabs."  Google made it easy to share these locations via text, email, social networks and messaging apps. On clicking the link, your families and friends can tap "follow" to see your list. 

Additionally, they made the lists viewable on desktop, mobile - Android and iOS - and offline. The latter feature will work after users download offline maps and the saved places will show on top of the maps.

This sounds like a nice update. Unfortunately, at the time I'm posting this, it is not available yet. Here's the link to Google Maps in the store so you can check.
