Google Maps adopts system share sheet on Android 14

Google Maps is now using the system share sheet on devices running Android 14, following other Google apps such as Chrome and Photos. This change signifies a withdrawal of the custom share interface previously used by the app and available in Google Maps version 11.122.x.

With the new system share interface in Android 14, users are presented with a more detailed link preview that includes the name of the location and an image. It also offers a direct share option with contacts and a more organized apps grid, with the “Maps: Add to list” feature prominently displayed.

In addition, Google Maps has improved accessibility by adding a share button to the full listing view, making it easier and quicker to share than before.


The older version of the share feature displayed a full-screen user interface, with a share button and an option to close at the top. It also showed the user’s profile information in the corner as part of a “Sharing as” feature.

The interface allowed for quick typing of a name, phone number, or email, followed by a carousel of suggested contacts and app shortcuts, including the ever-useful “Copy to clipboard” and an option to access more apps.
