Send Directions From Google Maps on Desktop to Your Phone


Google Maps on desktop and phone.

To get started, head over to in a desktop web browser such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. Use the search bar to find your desired location.

Find a location in Google Maps.

This will bring up the information panel for the location. One of the buttons underneath the location name is “Send to Your Phone,” click it.

Click "Send to Your Phone."

A menu will appear with a list of devices associated with your Google account, including iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. Tap the device you want to send the directions to.

Select a device from the menu.

Here’s where you’ll also notice the option to text or email the directions to yourself if you have your phone number or email address connected to your Google account.

This is what the notification looks like when it appears on an Android device. Tap it to open the location in Google Maps.

And here’s what it looks like on an iPhone or iPad.

That’s all there is to it. This is really a very simple trick, but it can be super handy. Google Maps on the desktop can be much easier to use if you’re doing a lot of looking around. Or maybe you just want to send a location to your phone for later. Make sure you’re taking advantage of everything Google Maps has to offer.
