Dropping a pin on Google Maps is the same, whether you are using an iPhone or an Android phone.

How to drop a pin on Google Maps on iPhone or Android phone:

Step 1

Open the Google Maps app.

Step 2

Find the location where you want to drop the pin and zoom in so that you can see it clearly.

Step 3

Tap and hold the spot where you want the pin dropped until you see a pin appear under your finger.

By doing this, you have successfully created a pin. Tap the share icon at the bottom of the screen, and you will be able to send the pin directly to one of your contacts.

Step 4

On mobile devices (including iPhone, iPad, and Android phones), you can use the search bar to drop pins.

You can also drop someone a pin by sending them your location on WhatsApp.

Note: With any of the pinned locations, it is possible to save them as starred or flagged locations. As this will let you find them again later on.
