Google Maps now lets you create and share lists of your favorite places

Google Maps is becoming a more social app this week as Google rolls out a new feature that allows users to create lists of places and share them with their friends.Now you can you can make lists of places that you can star, save and share with friends.

Each list has a “share” button, which lets you grab its link to share with others or share it via different social networks. This should make it easier to share things like favorite restaurants and shopping locations with visiting out-of-town family and the like. Businesswise, you can make a list of e.g. restaurants that your employees have a discount in or alike.

As Starred locations previously behaved, all of your saved locations in any list will appear on the map when you’re regularly using Google Maps. Lists are viewable on mobile and desktop versions of Google Maps, and can even be accessed while you’re offline. Read here how to best use this feature.
