Google announced that users can now create, access, and share Maps with its My Maps feature in Google Drive. Google's goal was to make creating a map as easy as creating a new document.

To do just that, go to "New," and then to "More" to find May Maps.

"Over the next week, all the maps you’ve created will also be accessible in Google Drive, so you can easily organize, manage and share them," Google says in a blog post. "Create folders such as 'Travel,' 'Hiking' and 'Holidays,' and search through them to find your favorite custom maps—which might be as varied as Fourth of July Trip, Half Marathon, or SantaCon."

"In addition to accessing your Google My Maps in Drive, you can now add more layers and points of interest to your map, import bigger spreadsheets and include more details in each info box," it adds. "Whether you’re mapping out the best surf spots down under or campgrounds in California, you can add all your favorite areas with more details across even more layers."

Speaking of spreadsheets, Sheets also got an update. You can now add charts within cells, so some of you may find that useful from time to time.
