A few months ago, Google updated Search to allow sending directions to your Android phone. That’s from a Google desktop search to a smartphone. It’s one easy way to bring the information and directions you need when going to a certain destination. This time, Google has updated the Maps app to finally allow it to send directly from desktop Maps to the mobile Android app.

Google Maps for desktop now features ‘Send’ links that lets you send the current location indicated on the card. When you click on it, a list of your other Android mobile devices whether tablet or phone will be shown. Only those that are signed in to your Google account will be included. From there, you can send the location to another device which will then receive a notification before the location or directions are displayed for navigation.
