Google Maps Plus Codes now available in MENA
Google Maps Plus Codes tool simply lets people share where they are — even if there isn’t an address.
Although originally launched in 2018, Plus Codes has now come to 18 countries across the Mena region including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria and more.
Google uses latitude and longitude co-ordinates to display a short sequence of numbers and letters that provide an accurate location when clicked on. The Plus Codes are also accessible offline and can be used to share any type of location such as a home, a store or a meeting place.
Currently, the feature is only available on Android, with iOS to follow soon.
