We often have plenty of updates for Android, but here’s something fun for those of you on iOS. It’s a widget that makes it easier and faster than ever to share your awesome photos and write insightful reviews of places you’ve been. We hope you’ll try it out.
Here’s how to add the Local Guides widget:
Swipe right on the lock screen, Home screen, or Notification Center to get to the Today View
Scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap “Edit”
Tap the + next to “Google Local Guides”
Now, when you swipe into the Today View, you’ll see your current location in the widget. Just tap to write a review or add a photo. If you tap “Show More,” you’ll see places you’ve visited recently, as well as your Local Guides Level and points total.
You can get to the Today View from any app or your device’s lock screen, which means you’ll always be just a swipe and a tap away from sharing knowledge on Google Maps.
We hope you’ll try it out and let us know what you think. Tell us in the comments.
