Share a favorite place or custom directions with a simple, shortened URL using the #newGoogleMaps

Use the short link tool to send us your favorite drive, dive, hike, or hideaway, and we'll pick one to feature in an upcoming #ScenicStreetViewFriday or #LocalSpot of the week.

Start exploring now with the new Google Maps for desktop:

Hasn't this feature been out for a while now?
Excellent. Hoping this means the embed code will be coming to the New Google Maps Maker soon! :-) 
hope to see an option to mark positions by a simple right-click.
this is very not obvious, really hard to find
Bring back My Maps. And make it easier to click options on the map to get directions. Maps is not helpful right now. 
Nice to see the short URLs back again, are these on mobile now too?
What about if you're in Street View? Where's the button!? For visitors in Cologne. Sparhandy offers a charging station"Ladestation". There are 8 lockable charging Boxes in the "Ladestation". Load your Handy in the safe charge box, go into the nice Cologne Innenstadt and if you come back your handy is full of charge:)
Yeah but I'm not at my desktop... 
ycrz the places where we go by defining the circumferences around..................
Thank god. I've been missing this feature alot.
Era l'ora! Non capisco perché non c'era dal principio, nel vecchio maps c'era! 
is there any chance to get the Google Earth button out of the maps? My stupid boss wants it. We are using iframes to embed in our homepage. 
That's great but how do I access my maps on android??? Want to make an improvement everyone will love? Undo all the changes from the last year. Every update just makes it less useful.
