Google Map users can now add, share their home addresses with Plus Codes
- Plus Codes are based on latitude and longitude
- The feature is currently available on Android only
Google has today announced the launch of a new India-first feature on Google Maps. Now you can use your current location to find the Plus Codes address for your home. When saving a ‘Home’ location on Google Maps, users in India will see a new “Use your current location" that uses their phone’s location to generate a Plus Code (if the location precision meets minimum thresholds,) which they can then use as their Home address. The feature is currently available on Android only, with iOS following soon.
