One of the best additions of the new batch is the ability of Google Maps to add all flight and hotel reservations in one place. To be able to access this section, all you have to do is enter Your Sites (from Google Maps) and in the Reservations tab you can see everything about your trips. It is perfect to plan them and have everything in one place.

Google Maps reservations can be viewed offline

Once the trip is selected, you can see all the information about boarding passes or hotel reservations even without an Internet connection. This feature is now available for some users in the Android and iOS beta and will be for all users in the coming weeks.

Don't forget that Google Maps has also added the Live View feature

Another of the novelties that has come to Google Maps recently is augmented reality, which allows us to see virtual signs on the map, using the camera of our phone. This new feature is also available for Android phones that support ARCore and iPhones with the ARKit feature. Here we explain how to activate it and more details about it.

Maps will also update the Your Timeline tab

And last but not least, Google Maps also redesign the Your timeline tab in the coming weeks so you can see all the places you've visited in a country or city. However, in order to enjoy this news you will have to activate your Location History or Google Maps will not be able to register this data. This new timeline will only be available on Android for what they comment on Phone Arena.

You can share the list of places you have visited, create a new one with which you are interested and send it to your friends. What do you think about the news that is about to reach Google Maps?
