How to Create and Share Lists in Google Maps

Creating and sharing lists of your favorite locations in Google Maps makes it easy to organize and recommend places you love. This guide will walk through the simple steps to start using this useful Google Maps feature. By learning how to make new lists, add locations, and share your collections with others, you can customize Maps to conveniently access and coordinate visits to your top spots. Follow along as we outline the process for crafting, managing, and distributing your own tailored Google Maps lists.

What Are Lists in Google Maps

Lists in Google Maps allow you to save and organize places you want to remember. You can create lists like "Favorite Restaurants" or "Places to Visit", add specific locations to each list, and access your lists anytime. Lists make it easy to find and share places you've saved without having to search again. They provide a way to plan trips and share recommendations by exporting the list links. With lists in Google Maps, you can bookmark locations for future reference and share lists socially or via messaging.

Now let's see the process of creating & sharing the list:

Steps to create lists in Google Maps

1. Open the Google Maps application on your phone. Tap on the search bar at the top of the screen to bring up the keyboard.

2. In the search bar, type the name or address of the place you want to save. As you type, Google Maps will show suggested locations.

3. Once you see your desired location appear in the search results, tap on it to open its details page. On this page, tap the "Save" icon, which looks like a ribbon bookmark. It is located in the middle of the page near the location name.

4. After tapping "Save", you will see options to save this location to an existing list or create a new list. If you want a new list, tap on "New List" at the bottom.

5. In the "Name your list" field that appears, type a name for your new list. For example "Favorite Restaurants". Then tap the "Create" button in the top right corner.

Steps to share lists in Google Maps

1. To access your saved places, go back to the Google Maps home screen. At the bottom, tap on the "Saved" icon.

2. On the Saved Places screen, select the list you just created.

3. On your list, you will see options to edit the list name, add more places, and share the list. Tap "Share" next to the Add button.

4. A pop-up will ask you to confirm sharing the list. Tap "Continue".

5. On the sharing menu, you can directly share the list with another app. Or tap "Copy to clipboard" to copy the list's link, allowing you to paste it anywhere else.

By following these basic instructions, you can start taking advantage of Google Maps' useful listing feature. Build convenient location repositories for personal or group travel planning, regularly visited spots, suggestions to friends, and more. Lists enable quick access and sharing of your handpicked places. With just a few taps, you can craft, organize, and distribute custom Map collections for life and trip streamlining.
