Google Maps recently announced a bunch of new features for India. These new features ease the process of searching or sharing an address. The company has combined area code with the local code to generate a unique “Plus” code for every geographical area. The Google Maps Plus code can be broadcasted across social media platforms for sharing.

Google Maps Plus Code

The Google Plus code is a combination of GPS location details and the local area pin code. Up until now, Google Maps let the users share direct GPS locations. However, with the Google Maps Plus Code, the sharing of location is a lot easier. This feature is available for both Android and iOS operating systems.
