In addition, an “Upcoming” tab has been added to the “Your Places” menu in Google Maps. This tab contains a list of a user’s upcoming events, which have been pulled from Google Calendar and Gmail.

A user can ensure that a Google Calendar event will appear in Google Maps by entering the event’s address in the “Where” section when creating it in Google Calendar.

Finally, users can hide specific events from their maps by tapping on them from the map and tapping “Dismiss.”
