Google Maps is mainly used as a navigation application that allows users to move more easily from point A to point B. Google Maps also comes with a number of other useful features, some of which are not necessarily used in cars.
One of them is the Timeline, which makes it possible for everyone to see the places they have already traveled to and get more information about their visits.
