Google Maps has rolling out a “2020 Timeline Update” via an email and with this, you will get all the recap of the places where you have visited in the year of pandemic. Apart from this, three are also a number of additional information. The aim of these updates is to provide you with useful local statistics and also show all the cities and the images which might up pop when you travelled there.
For many avid travellers and general users, this might not enthuse you as 2020 has been a year where travel industry took a massive bit. People stayed indoors and hence, in case you get the email, you can choose to ignore it.
This comes in the form of an email, as mentioned by 9to5 Google. It says that “Covid-19 changed the world’s travels in 2020, and how many places people were able to visit. If you were able to travel this year, you can see some of the places you’ve been with the help of this automated Timeline email”.
Apart from this, there will also be a map that shows where you travelled with the cities and places count, and at the same time, it will show if there is something new to do and explore. And, then there is also a new ‘trends’ section that breaks down the types of places like shopping, food and drinks, and more that you have visited every month in 2020.
All these new features come in addition to the statistics that say how many miles you have walked or driven. Also, there are the “Cities visited” and “Places visited” that highlight section and they also get a cover image. In the end of the email, you will be able to see the total distance that you have travelled in 2020 along with “Your all times data.”
