Group Planning Feature Now Rolling Out For Google Maps

The other day it was reported that Google’s Decide with Friends feature was rolling out for some users. For those who weren’t part of that initial wave, you’ll be pleased to learn that the feature is now rolling out for everyone, as announced by Google on their blog in which they detail the feature which basically lets users plan outings and events in a group.

According to Google, “Starting today, you can use Google Maps to easily plan where to go as a group. Simply long press on any place to add it to a shortlist – the small floating bubble on the side of your screen. Once you’ve added places, you can quickly share the list with your friends on any messaging platform, add or remove additional places, and vote together in Google Maps.”

This was a feature that Google had announced earlier this year at Google I/O 2020 and now it looks like it is finally available for everyone on both iOS and Android. Users will need to update to the latest version of Google Maps if they wish to check it out. That being said, there are other ways that users can try to organize outings.

However given how robust Google Maps are with reviews and ratings and also being able to pin the location of the venue, it makes it more convenient.
