Like we said, this was for Android at that time, but the good news is that it looks like Google has finally brought the feature over onto iOS, giving iOS users the same multi-stop convenience that Android users have been enjoying.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the feature, basically multi-stops allows users to set multiple destinations at once that they’d like to go to. For example if you’re on a road trip and you’re planning on stopping by several scenic stops, you could set those stops on Google Maps and it will guide you to each destination.

This could work too if you’re running errands and there are multiple locations that you need to go to during the day. According to Google, “Here’s how it works: Just open the app, enter a destination, tap the corner menu, and then tap ‘Add stop’. To rearrange the order of your stops, tap and hold the stop you want to move and drag it to the position you want. Once you’ve added all your stops, tap “Done” and your multi-stop route is complete. When you enter navigation mode you’ll have the same seamless driving experience you’re used to, whether you’re going from errand to errand or hitting scenic spots along Route 66.”

It seems that Google is allowing users to set a maximum of three different stops, and at the bottom they will also list how long the trip will take. The update should already be live so be sure to update your Google Maps if you haven’t done so already.
