Google Maps is one of the tools that we most often use on our smartphones. This time we will see how to use Plus Codes, a way to easily share our location.
Finding a street is not always easy, sometimes the address that appears on Google Maps does not have an exact location or it is simply difficult to find the address. Google Maps in 2015, included the Plus Codes that are unique codes in the world which we can share to offer an exact address beyond the postal address to which we are so used to it.
How are the Plus Codes?
Plus Codes are made up of 4-digit codes that include letters and numbers. At the end of the code, the town in which that location is located will be displayed.
It should be noted that these codes are found in all locations, to find them we only have to slide down on the card and that's it we may share that exact location.
Where to find our Plus Code?
Plus Codes have an unlimited duration so we can add them to our Google Maps without fear that they will change in a moment future. We will know the Plus Code of our current location when clicking on the blue point located on the Google Maps map through which our location is shown in real time.
If a friend sends us a Plus Code and we want to go to that location, we must copy it and enter it in the Google Maps search barIt is true that Plus Codes are more designed for emergencies than to be used in our daily lives, although if our address is not easy to find it can be interesting.
It is true that the vast majority of users will continue to share their location as before, although it never hurts to know about this type of integration that allows us to identify an exact location on the map.
