Send directions to device from desktop Google Maps

Google now has made it so a user of Google Maps on the desktop can send directions to his or her mobile device.

To do so:

  1. Go to Google Maps on your computer.
  2. Sign in to Google Maps with the same account on your computer and your mobile device.
  3. Search for a place.
  4. Click Send to device on the place card that pops up.
  5. Choose the device you want to send the information to.

There are two more things. Firstly, you can’t send a place to your mobile device if you’re using Maps in Lite Mode. In order to turn it off should you have it on, go to the desktop version of Maps and click the main menu in the top left. You will see an option to disable it. Lastly, make sure you have version 9.11.0 (the latest as of this post) or higher of the app.
