If you want to share your location with friends and family or want to remember where you took a particular photo, you can add geotags, or location tags, to your pictures. Geotagging photos using Google Maps is easy on Android.
In this tutorial, we'll show you how to geo-tag photos using Google Maps on your Android phone. With this feature, you can add location information to your photos so that others can see where the photo was taken. This can be useful if you're sharing photos of a trip or event and want to let others know where it was. To geo-tag photos, you'll need to have the Google Maps app installed on your phone.
First, open the Google Maps app and make sure you’re signed in. Then, tap the menu icon in the top left corner of the screen.
In the menu, tap “Your timeline.” If this is the first time you’re opening Your timeline, you may be asked to turn on Location History.
Next to the search bar, tap the three dot menu icon and select “Settings.”
In the Settings menu, tap “Control Location History” and then turn on the “Location History” switch.
Now, go back to Your timeline and tap on a day to view the photos you took on that day.
Tap on a photo to open it, then tap the info icon in the bottom right corner.
In the photo info window, tap “Edit location.”
A map will open with a pin indicating where the photo was taken. You can move the pin to adjust the location if needed. When you’re finished, tap “Done.”
Your photo is now geotagged with the location you selected. To view the location of a photo, tap the info icon and then “View location.” The location will be marked on a map.
