How to Add Multiple Labels in Google Maps

As Google Maps continues to evolve, it lets you add a marker for your home and work location. So, if you want to mark more important places, Google Maps allows you to add multiple labels or markers. It’s pretty easy to place these additional tags or markers on Google Maps.

Adding tags to Google Maps has two advantages. First, you can easily find that place again in Maps instead of typing its name to search for it. You also get a rough estimate of the time and traffic before you set off, even if you know the route.

Adding multiple markers to Google Maps is pretty easy, whether on your Android smartphone (or iPhone) or PC.

Let’s see how to add multiple places in Google Maps.

So the next time you tap on the search box, the saved tags will be found right next to Work and Home. Just swipe right to see them all.

You can remove a tag but cannot edit it from this page. At the same time, you cannot edit the location of the tags. They appear in alphabetical order after Home and Work.

The good thing is that you can also pin the location to start the driver right away (or have a preview).

Tags are marked private and no one else can access them.

As noted earlier, you cannot edit a tag directly from the Add Tag page. The option to do this is somewhat hidden.

Stage 1: Go to the Saved tab in Google Maps. If you’ve saved them fairly recently, those tags will appear just above.

Google Maps saves that location until you remove it manually or after a certain amount of time. Google Maps saves for about 8 hours.

Also, you can save only one parking space at a time.

To access a parked location, tap the P icon in Maps, then tap Direction or Start.

Make Your Journey Easier

This is how you could add tags to Google Maps. As stated earlier, these are private lists, meaning you cannot share them. To make a list shareable, save it in a list other than Tagged.
