Android gets Google Maps desktop-to-mobile destination info, too – Engadget

Google Holds News Conference

The latest update to Google Maps on Android is one of those things that honestly should have happened a long time ago, but surprisingly didn’t until recently: Now you can send destination info directly to your mobile device from the desktop. Just like on iOS. And as Android Police points out, it all sounds pretty facile. So long as you have the latest version of the mobile app installed, from the Maps website you should see an option to send the current query to devices you’re signed into with your Google account. From there, an actionable notification pops on your gizmo and you can either check out the destination’s website (if there is one) or its profile card on Google. Like I said, it’s pretty simple and something you’d have thought was already there but actually wasn’t.
