New Google Maps Feature: Saved Locations

You've asked for it, and it's finally here. You can now store a list of your personal addresses on Google Maps. How does it work?

1. Sign into your Google Account.
2. Click on "Saved Locations" to see a list of the locations you've searched for (Google automatically saves every location you searched for - autosave can be disabled if necessary).
3. In your Saved Locations folder, you can edit the locations with labels i.e. "home", "mom's house" and etc.
Auto-completion is another new addition e e.g. when you enter an address that's in your saved locations folder Google Maps will offer to auto-complete it for you. This feature is also available when searching for businesses.

If you've labeled the address "1600 Amphitheatre Pky, Mountain View, CA" as "work" (as some Googlers would), when you start typing [pizza near work], we'll offer to auto-complete it as [pizza near 1600 Amphitheatre Pky, Mountain View, CA].
Here’s a tip: When a list of auto-completions is offered, you can hit the Tab key to select the first one.
