My location

The My location feature for Android makes it easier to search around you and see what’s nearby. It places you at the center of the map.

Access and enable My location:

Make sure you’ve enabled Location Services on your device. See your device’s help center for more information.

Tap the location button in the bottom right corner of the screen. The location button will turn blue, and the screen will center on your approximate location, represented by a blue dot on the map .

Location accuracy

Depending on which location options you’ve enabled, you’ll see varying degrees of approximation, with GPS satellites providing the best accuracy, followed by wireless networks, then cell networks.

At times, you may see the dot surrounded by a light blue circle. This indicates that there is some uncertainty about your location.
