Live in a yellow submarine on Google Maps

by John_A

Google wants to help you remodel your house one sticker at a time. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but the search giant is adding options to customize locations (including your abode and where you work) within Google Maps by adding a whimsical icon to it. You can totally tell people you work in a lighthouse, pirate ship or a even live in yellow submarine, so long as you don’t mind sharing it with a few musical insects, that is. What’s more, you can add labels to just about any destination now so can get push notifications about what traffic and travel time will be like to, say, the grocery store during rush hour.

However, based on what Google says, it sounds like you can only apply stickers to where you earn and bake your bread — nowhere else. Folks with iOS devices will have to wait for this because it’s only available for Android users at the moment.
