Google introduced Plus Codes in Maps back in 2015 in a bid to make it easier for people to find places that don't have a physical address or are simply difficult to find. Now, the company is making it easier for the Android users to share their location using Maps' Plus Codes.

To give you a brief about the feature, Plus Codes are simple and easy to use digital addresses that have been derived from the latitude and longitude of a users' location. These codes can be used to uniquely identify any location. They work in places that haven't been mapped and they don't use country codes to identify an individual's location.
