Google Maps integration is as easy as tagging people.


Google has transformed its Workspace suite of office applications, including Docs, Sheets, and Slides, into playful, collaborative places. Google Docs now supports inline emoji, however smiling faces may not belong in papers. Google now lets you add inline Maps data to Docs using smart chips.

Google Workspace debuted smart chips last year to tag people, files, and locations in Docs, Sheets, or Slides. For a location, copy and paste a Google Maps URL into a draught, then press Tab. Anyone with access to the document might search up the location and find directions.

If you’re guilty of stacking hundreds of tabs on your web browser, though, Google is making it easier to add these place chips to your document without having to switch pages. Precede the location’s name with “@” Type “@” then the location’s address. In your Docs file, pick Insert, choose Smart chips, then choose Place to add a place chip.

You can now write addresses directly instead of searching a location on Maps and copying the link. The link will shorten to the location’s name after you find it. As previously, clicking it displays all information.

The improved Google Maps chip means you don’t have to open a map in another tab to see if you typed an address correctly. The direct link to Google Maps provides one-click access to extra data and mapping directions.

Google launched the new feature on August 22, 2022, and more people will have it by September 8.
