Google already rolled out a big redesign for Google Maps earlier this year in celebration of the app’s 15th birthday, but Google is not done yet. The redesign brought a new icon, navigation bar, more transit features and a live view where it uses the camera to show real-time directions overlaid on what you see (it’s not available in India yet). And now, continuing with the redesign, Google has rolled out a new feature for Google Maps that helps with remembering saved places.

There’s a new Saved tab in the Google Maps app at the top. So you can easily navigate to the place you have saved or find a nearby place you have saved. Once you have granted the location permission to the app, Google Maps will show you all your nearby saved places in a carousel for easy picking. These saved places will be arranged based on proximity.

Google Maps launched a new feature called Saved tabs

Another new feature is the ability to track the places you’ve been to, using location history. This becomes handy when you have to trace your steps back if you wish to find something, or simply to reminisce where you spent your time in a particular city.

The new features are being rolled out in phases and will first hit Android smartphones. The changes have been spotted in the 10.48.2 version of Google Maps.
