Google Maps Allow users to add public events Here is How It Works

 Google Maps for Android has introduced the capability to add a public event on the navigation application. The Contribute Tab on its own Android app has the option to add a public event, allowing companies and events managers publicize their next gig, without having to shell out any money. This attribute is still live in certain areas, and the event takes half an hour to become live on google maps once you have added it.

In addition, the attribute is only accessible on Android for today. The newest Events feature was seen by Android Police first. Google has also upgraded its support page to reflect information about the new attribute. The support page says the attribute might not be available in most regions. To add an event, head to Google Maps on Android, tap on Contribute >Events > Add a general event. You may add an event name, tag the location, and add the time and date of the event as well. There is an option to add an image, write more events information, and add a description as well.

Android Police reports that it’d issues while adding an image to the event. After the event is saved, the creator can edit it as well, by heading to Contribute >Events >Select your event >Edit this event. In addition, you can even delete the event by clicking Contribute >Events >Edit this event >Publish this event. There are no words on when this feature will be available in most regions worldwide, or when Google plans to roll it for iPhone users. In the time of writing, we were not able to see the attribute in the Google Android app. Separately, Google has reintroduced the city, nation, and country borders on Maps for Android.

The attribute has been removed without any warning that a couple of months ago, however it appears to have made a comeback, with Android Police spotting it first. The borders show up when a user types broad searches as a town, or a country, or a country. Before, the borders have been highlighted with gray, but now, the field which you search is highlighted with red. The report says this attribute is showing up in version 10.12.1, but it is not consistent. In some searches, the attribute showed a trap, while at some the new outline attributes showed up. We are not able to see the brand new outline attribute yet in our upgraded app. Previously this month, Google Maps has deployed a feature that allows users to report injuries and speed cubes while browsing to their destinations.
