1. Storing your home and work addresses

It's a good idea to save your work and home addresses in Google Maps. This makes it easier to navigate to either location by saying, for example, "OK Google, navigate to work." You will also see relevant traffic information in your Google feed.

Steps to save your home and work addresses:

  • Open Google Maps.
  • Tap the Menu icon located in the upper left.
  • Select Your Places.
  • You will see Home and Work under the Labeled section.
  • Enter the address for each location and they will be saved.
