Google has figured it out and you can now easily send location details to your Android device, straight from the browser. All you need to do is go to Google Maps on your browser and search for your destination as you normally would. Once Google Maps locates your destination, the information window will include a “Send to device” option right below the address and hours. Click on it and a list of your devices will show up. Select your device of choice and you will get a notification with the option to navigate or get directions.

You can send a place you find in Google Maps on your computer to your mobile device in following simple steps:

1. Open Google Maps on your computer.
2. Make sure you’re signed in to Google Maps on your computer and mobile device with the same account.
3. Search for a place.
4. Click Send to device in the place card that appears.
5. Click the device you want to send the place to.
