How to set/add your home and work address location on Google Maps

- Advertisment -

Googling is a way of life nowadays. From searching for a bite of information to book flights, Google has made our life easier in a way, we never thought of, a decade ago. One of the most used Google services is the Google Maps, which is more than just showing us directions to the favorite restaurant or a coffee shop. We can plan our journey by having a look at the traffic condition, and in most cases, Google gives us the correct information about the traffic condition of that place. This feature is my personal favorite.

But apart from showing the traffic condition in an area, it is also possible to have a look at the places you have visited, with the help of Google Maps. Not only that, you can even tell Google about your home and workplace for additional benefits and get various updates about your home and workplace from Google. For example, if you are at your home and is planning to go to your office, you can get information about any upcoming storms or bad weather at your workplace. Yes, you can fairly expect the opposite as well, before coming back to your home after a hectic day at the office.

So let’s find out how to assign your home and work location in Google Maps.
