Google develops ‘Plus Codes’ on android

Multinational technology company, Google, has developed ‘Plus Codes’’, rolling them out for Google Maps on android.

A statement from Google said Plus Codes are simple, easy to use digital addresses derived from latitude and longitude coordinates. They can be used to uniquely identify any location, from a rural home in a remote area to a hidden shop on a nameless street.

To share location, users are to simply tap the blue dot in Google Maps that represents their location, and get a Plus Code, which they can share the same way they would a phone number, the company said.
