Retrace All Your Steps with Google's New 'Your Timeline' Feature


The latest Google update lets you retrace all your movements through time.

This feature is called Timeline and it logs every location and distance that you travel as long as you have have your phone with you.

Google is gradually rolling out the option to use Timeline but it should be available soon to every user. At the moment the working versions are for android and desktop.

Timeline also syncs with Google Photos, showcasing the images that you geo-tagged for each place you visited.



According to the Google blog where the announcement was made "your Timeline is private and visible only to you; and you control the locations you choose to keep. This means you can easily delete a day or your full history at any time. You can edit any place that appears in Your Timeline, including removing a specific location or giving a frequented spot a private name like -- Mom's House or My Favorite Running Spot. This spot will then appear right in Google Maps when you're logged in."
