You can now see any of your custom maps that you’ve built with Google’s My Maps tool inside the main Google Maps Android app.  

You’ll still need to use the My Maps website or separate Android app to create your own maps, which are rather useful for vacation planning or business trips. You’re able to place markers, plot routes, and share them with others.

Why this matters: While My Maps is a clever tool, it hasn’t quite captured the hearts and minds of Android users the way other services have. Bringing it into the main Google Maps application puts it in front of more eyeballs, who then may be tempted to try out their topographical skills.
