The Google Maps app for iOS now lets users add multiple destinations in a single trip, just like on the web and, more recently, on Android.

Just a few weeks ago, when Google announced that you could have multiple stops on trips in the Android version of Google Maps, the company said the feature would come to iOS, and now it’s here. The feature is part of version 4.21.0 of the iOS app, which arrived in the App Store on July 25.

All you have to do is enter a destination, select the blue navigation button, hit the three dots near the top right corner of the screen, and tap “Add stop,” Google Maps product manager Aditya Dhanrajani wrote in a blog post. Add as many stops as you like.

If you’re in the middle of a trip in navigation mode, you can also add a stop, using the magnifying glass icon to find a specific place. You can also remove stops as necessary, by swiping up from the trip duration menu on the bottom and hitting the X next to specific stops, or by hitting the X button to the left of the trip duration and tapping “remove stop.” Alternatively, you can choose the “exit navigation” button, then tap in to the destinations at the top to cancel destinations. From there, you can also add more stops or swap the order of the stops as you see fit.
