Wonder why Google had not thought of this before? Did it slip though the cracks? Whatever maybe the case, better late than never.
Google has announced on its official blog post that whatever driving directions you have sought on Google Maps on your desktop can now be forwarded to your Android device.
According to the post on Google Support, if you have the latest version of Google Maps installed (9.11.0), you should see Send to device appear at the bottom of the card detailing the current location. Clicking it will pull up a list of your supported phones and tablets, which are those that you’ve signed into using the same Google account.
