(PC World) – Google is rolling out a new “Your Timeline” feature for Maps over the coming weeks that is certain to thrill some folks—and horrify others.
The feature allows you to view your entire location history on Google Maps based on data pulled from your devices when signed-in to your Google account. Google calls Your Timeline “a useful way to remember and view the places you’ve been on a given day, month or year.”
You can already view your location history by diving into the My Account dashboard for your Google account. The difference now is that it will be available in a more user-friendly manner right from the Google Maps menu on the desktop or Android.
Mashing up your data even further, Google Photos users will also see any photos they took on a given day at a given location inside the Your Timeline feature. If, for example, you visited Coney Island on July 2, as you peruse your voyage around the area that day you’ll see photos next to the entries for the places you took them—assuming you uploaded the images to Google drive, of course.
