Google Maps Timeline is a very innovative and beneficial technology for a user, as it let you access the routes and areas. It becomes even more important when you are going somewhere for the first time and don’t know the route. Google provides you the driving directions visually along with Artificial Intelligence voice which directs you on each and every step.

Your Google Map Timeline

With the help of this feature of Google you can access the places which you have been visited, how much distance have your covered and even the way which you have used to cover that particular destination, everything is available there.

In some cases, if you want to make the changes to the places which you have visited, it gives you the flexibility to change the route, the destination, the vehicle even the timing too. If you like you can delete any particular place also from your Google Map Timeline.
