It’s time to rejoice as Google has finally added multi-stop trip support for its Maps app on iPhone.
Google has revealed an upgrade to its Google Maps application on Apple’s iOS platform. The upgrade has at last brought the tremendously required multi stop support to the application. Trust it or not, the mobile version of Google Maps hasn’t had support for multiple destinations.

With this new upgrade Google Maps on iOS now gives the users the ability to incorporate multiple stops a single trip. Strikingly, this component has been accessible on the web version of Maps for quite a while. Android already has the feature rolled out recently, and now iOS users can also enjoy the same.

Utilizing this feature is very simple.  After opening this application, users initially need to enter the location of the destination. When this is done, the alternatives can be tapped to access the “Add Stop” item. This is the place various stops can be included. Not only that, it’s additionally conceivable to re-organize the request of the stops. All that a user has to do is drag and drop the stops to the position required. After setting up everything users have to just tap the item “done” and the multi stop route is ready to use.

As an important part of this update the typography and road outlines were removed, bringing in different points of interest like train stations and spots. New interest areas are highlighted with different shades which helps to depict different districts. This results into a cleaner look making it easier to watch out the actionable and useful information including traffic and transit.
This update from Google is much helpful for the people like me who are always interested in planning trips on a computer but definitely rely on their mobile device for the purpose of navigation.
