Update: Full changelog is available now
Collections features was one of the most liked features of HERE Maps. While HERE pulled its app from Windows 10 store, the feature didn’t make its way to Windows native maps app.
That’s going to changes soon, as the latest update for Windows 10 Maps app, which has been released to Fast Ring brings Collections feature. The latest update takes the app version to 5.1610.2954.0.
Now you can save a random location to a new collection to arrange them in a better way. Now you would be able to see collections and favorites in same place in the app.
Windows Map Changelog:
One of our most requested features has been to be able to organize your favorites, and save places into collections. With the latest Maps update, you can do that! So go ahead and organize your favorites or start adding all the places you want to keep as a reference in separate lists—without overloading your favorites list.
We also made it easier to save places, as favorites or to a collection. You can now open the favorites or collections list and start adding places from there, or as before, add them from the details pane for any place. And now you can tap on your current location and save it to your favorites or a collection too.
Finally, we also updated how you view and save your most important favorites: home, work, and where you parked your car. They’re up at the top of your favorites list, but they take up less space and are easier to add.
The update is available only for Fast ring for now but may make its way to Slow / Release Preview Rings soon.
