1. Find your location

If you want to share photos of your current location, tap the compass icon in the bottom-right. Alternatively, to upload photos of somewhere else – for instance, the hotel you recently stayed at – type the exact name or address into the top bar.

2. Add photos

Once Maps has navigated to the right place, swipe upwards from the bottom of the screen to view an info card. Here you can view other users photos, or just tap ‘Add photos’ to upload your own. However, this option is only available for public places, not private residence.

3. Select images

If you want to take photos of your current location and share them to Maps, tap ‘Take a photo’ to launch the camera app. If want to upload existing photos tap ‘Choose from Gallery.’ You will then be able to share individual pictures or upload an entire photo album en masse.

4. Upload your pictures

Once you’ve selected the photos you want to add, click ‘Select’ in the top-right hand corner. This will take you to the final screen where you click the arrow in the top-right corner to upload the pictures. Don’t forget, these are now free for anyone who clicks on that location to see.
