Google just fixed one of the most annoying problems with its Maps app by adding multi-stop trips

Rejoice! Google has finally added multi-stop trip support for its Maps app.

The feature has long been available on the desktop version, which made its absence on the app even more annoying for those of us (like me) who like to plan roadtrips on a computer but rely on a phone for navigation. Not being able to add multiple stops on the app was incredibly frustrating.

The capability rolls out today on Android, and a Google spokesperson promises that it will launch on iOS in a few weeks.

Just open the app, tap the corner menu, and click “Add stop.” You can rearrange the order of stops by clicking on the three lines next to one and then dragging it.

Here’s Google’s GIF explanation:
