Google Maps for Android finally adds custom names for places [Update]

Thursday, July 23, 2015

Google Maps added a timeline view to Android today, which allows users to easily view their location history on mobile.

Location history has been available on the desktop site for some time and was in the Android version until it was removed in 7.0, but now it's back.

Your Timeline, is a useful way to remember and view the places you’ve been on a given day, month or year. Your Timeline allows you to visualize your real-world routines, easily see the trips you’ve taken and get a glimpse of the places where you spend your time. And if you use Google Photos, we’ll show the photos you took when viewing a specific day, to help resurface your memories.

Your Timeline is private and visible only to you; and you control the locations you choose to keep. This means you can easily delete a day or your full history at any time. You can edit any place that appears in Your Timeline, including removing a specific location or giving a frequented spot a private name like -- Mom’s House or My Favorite Running Spot. This spot will then appear right in Google Maps when you’re logged in.
