Find & share a location using Plus Codes

Plus Codes work similar to street addresses. They can help you get and use a simple digital address. They can also help you define a specific location for a conventional address. For example, you can identify different entrances to the same building.

You can use Plus Codes to identify a specific location to receive deliveries, access emergency and social services, or direct people to a location. Since the codes are simple, you can easily share them with others.

Plus Codes are based on latitude and longitude. They use a simple grid system and a set of 20 alphanumeric characters. The character list purposely excludes easy to confuse characters like “1” or “l.”

Here’s an example of a Plus Code: JJXX+HR8, Seattle.

1- On your Android phone or tablet, open Google Maps mobile web or the Google Maps app .
2- Find the location where you want to get a Plus Code. To drop a Pin at the location, touch and hold the screen.
3- At the bottom, tap the “Dropped pin” panel.
4- Find the Plus Code beside the Plus Code logo . For example: JJXX+HR8, Seattle.
5- To copy a location’s code, tap the Plus Code .
6- To share the location, paste the Plus Code into your email or messaging app, just as you would do for a traditional address.
