Google Maps will soon have a new Trips tab in Timeline on Android that will show users a summary of past vacations and total kilometres travelled. This is a part of the new features Google is introducing related to trips and travelling. Google Photos will soon be receiving Timeline as well that will allow users to see the paths they took on a certain day, alongside photos. You can also see and share past trip itineraries, including hotels and restaurants, you've received confirmations for in your Gmail by tapping on the Trips tab on the desktop site, google.com/travel.

The Trips tab in Timeline on Google Maps will show an estimate of places you may have been to and routes you may have taken, based on your location history. According to Google, you will be able to see a summary of your past vacations, information about the places you have visited, total kilometres travelled, and the modes of transportation you used through the tab.

You can edit your timeline at any time and choose to delete your Location History. Timeline can be viewed on Google Maps app version 9.12 and up, and the Trips tab will soon be available in the app for Android users.

Google said that Timeline will soon be rolling out to the Google Photos map view as well. This will let you see the paths you took on a particular day alongside your photos, including pictures you clicked while hiking or driving. It is also possible to hide your Timeline from your map view's settings in Photos.

Google had recently also added a COVID-19 layer in Maps that allows users to get information about COVID-19 cases in a particular area. Google Maps will soon be able to show you how busy a location is directly from map view.
