Google has rolled out a small update on their Google Maps platform.
You can now setup and access your home and office locations through the My Places section on Google Maps.
Google spoke about this new feature:
With home and work locations saved in Google Maps, we hope to help you navigate your way to these frequently visited places, regardless of where you may be.
By saving your home and work locations in My Places, you’ll also see special icons to easily identify these locations on the map.
By saving these locations that are common to you in My Places, you’ll be able to access these addresses by simply typing “home” or “work” when searching or getting directions in Google Maps.
