Google Maps has become one of the most used tools on a daily basis, as it helps us plan routes and move better around the city. But there are always friends or family who are not very clear about how to get from one place to another, and it is useful to know how to share the route with them directly with WhatsApp .
To send the steps of a Google Maps route by WhatsApp (either to a contact or a group), you just have to follow several simple steps.
How to share Google Maps driving directions on WhatsApp
The first step, of course, is to enter the Google Maps app. Enter the destination you want to reach in the search field, and click on the "Go" button in the lower right corner .
Once this option is selected, Google Maps will automatically detect your location to show you directions from that point . If you want the origin of the route to be another, specify it at the top, in the field intended for it.
It is also important that you indicate in which means the route will be displayed: transport by car, on foot or by public transport . In this way, the recipient of your WhatsApp message will receive the appropriate instructions for their movement.
Once the instructions are shown on the screen, you will only have to display the menu in the upper right corner. Click on the option "Share directions " and select the WhatsApp icon from the list.
Then the list of recent conversations in the app will open, and you can share them with whoever you want. As with the images, you can send the instructions to different conversations at the same time , separately, or send them to one of your groups.
Everything is ready! The selected conversations will receive the instructions as soon as you click on the green WhatsApp "Send" button .
