View Location History On Android

View Location History On Android: It’s good when an app manages to tell you where you and what are the places you can visit nearby or eat from. With the help of location history, it’s easier to set up navigation and look if you’ll be stuck in traffic on your way to work or if there’s a roadblock on your usual route.

Also, Google can let you see the locations you’ve gone to in the past. The places you frequently visit and look where you were exactly on a specific day in the past.

You can use different methods to do this, including the Google app, Google Maps app, and browser app like Chrome. Let’s check out each one of them.
