As spotted by 9to5Google , Google Maps is currently rolling out its “2020 Timeline update,” an email which gives you a breakdown of the places you’ve been based on your location history.


While this recap is also available monthly, the outlet notes, the 2020 update will show what your travel habits have looked like for all of last year.


Yes, 2020 was the year of the coronavirus pandemic, which seriously affected travel and movement in general, and Google acknowledges as much.


“COVID-19 changed the world’s travels in 2020, and how many places people were able to visit,” the email reads, per 9to5Google.


In order to use the feature, you apparently have to have Location History turned on in your Google account settings.
