How Google determines your location when you search

When you use Google, like with Maps, Search or Google Assistant, your current location is estimated from several sources, depending on their availability. These sources are used together to determine where you are:

  • Your device location
  • Your Google account addresses like from your home or your work
  • Your Google Home app for your speaker, Smart Display, or Smart Clock
  • Your Google products with your previous activity
  • Your internet connection's IP address
