Up to this point, only the desktop version of Google Maps allowed users to map a multi-stop trip. Starting today however, this feature is rolling out on mobile.
In a blog post, Google notes that the option to add multiple waypoints will allow users to set “stops” along their route, rather than mapping out one stop at time over the course of their trip. Specifically, users will now have the option to “Add Destinations” to their route.
Stops will appear as letters that also show up on the map as an icon, and these destinations can easily be reordered before starting a trip.
This feature seems to be activated through a server-wide switch, meaning that all users with the latest version of Google Maps for Android (version 9.31.2) should come across the upgrade shortly.
While the upgrade isn’t yet available for iOS, Google says it will be “coming soon.”
