New Delhi. Google has introduced a new ‘Timeline’ feature in Maps, which will help you remember the places you have visited.
Soon, your timeline will be saved directly to your device, giving you even more control over your data.
This feature is powered by a setting called ‘Location History’.
“If you’re getting a new phone or are worried about losing your existing phone, you can always choose to back up your data to the cloud,” the tech giant said in a blogpost on Tuesday. We will automatically encrypt your backed up data so that no one, including Google, can read it.
Additionally, the company said, “When you first turn on Location History, auto-delete controls will be set to three months by default, which means any data older than that will be automatically deleted. ”
Google said, these changes will gradually be implemented on Android and iOS over the next year and you will receive a notification when this update comes to your account.
In another update, the company said it brings location controls right to your fingertips with the Blue Dot, which shows where you are on Google Maps.
All you have to do is tap it and you’ll see whether your Location History or Timeline setting is on and whether you’ve given Maps access to your device’s location.
The new Blue Dot controls will roll out to Android and iOS in the coming weeks.
