Google recently announced a new update to its Maps application wherein users can see their upcoming events from their calendars directly on the app.

The update, which was announced on September 30, is especially aimed to make the user experience more convenient. According to Google, this will allow users to save time as they can navigate their daily tasks and travel to their destinations and appointments.

 

Additionally, Google also introduced another update that provides users with the access to tabs dedicated to information regarding upcoming events or appointments. These can be added to the map and users can obtain appropriate directions from the app accordingly.

How can users enable this function?

Users simply need to sign in to both, Google Maps and Google Calendar. Thereafter, add a location whenever an event is entered into the calendar.

What’s more? In a statement to Venture Beat, the tech company said that confirmation emails for hotel, plane and restaurant reservations are also going to show up in Maps as events, particularly in the Upcoming tab.

The latest Google update is only available for Android users as of now.
