Windows Insiders on the Fast ring are being treated to a couple of new features in the Windows Maps app today. While there's nothing earth-shattering, the latest update does add some new capabilities related to sharing your collections and saving important locations (via Aggiornamenti Lumia).
The main addition is that you can now share your collections with friends and family. When you navigate into a collection you've created in Maps, you'll now see a "Share" icon nestled next to the "Edit," "Print," and "Pin" icons that have been there all along. Choosing to share will open the share dialog with options to send collections to specific people or apps. On the minor side of things, you'll also now be able to more easily find and save locations with shortcut menus.
Here's the official look at what's new:
- Sare your collections with your friends and family.
- Save searched places and find nearby locations more easily with shortcut menus.
If you're on the Windows Insider Fast ring, you should be able to grab these features now with Windows Maps version 5.1804.1021.0. Presumably, the same features will begin rolling out to other Insider rings and, eventually, the release version of the app, soon.
