You can now send Google Maps directions from the desktop to your Android device
About a month ago, Google updated Maps allowing users to send directions pulled up in a desktop browser to the Google Maps app on iOS devices.
Now that feature is enabled for Android devices too, and it works from Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer desktop browsers. If you have the latest version of Google Maps (v. 9.11.0) on your Android device, and you are signed in with your Google ID, then the option to send directions from the browser to your compatible smartphone or tablet should automatically appear.
The sent directions will appear as a notification on your device, and you are good to go to begin navigating or review the route. This new feature is certainly going to be quite handy.
