Does it make a difference where I save places?

enter image description here


Those are the three "core" lists that Google Maps supplies and I guess that theoretically they have different purposes.

The main difference is about the options available for each list, for example, the Favorites can't be hidden from your map, and the Starred places can't be shared.

The available options:

  • Favorites:
    ❌ Hide
    ✅ Share
  • Want to go
    ✅ Hide
    ✅ Share

  • Starred places
    ✅ Hide
    ❌ Share

The edit options is of course available for all lists, and the delete options is available only for user-created lists.

So it makes a difference where you save it only if the available options make difference to you for different scenarios.

    I just tried and I actually could hide the favorites list on my map. – Dennis Golomazov Jan 4 '19 at 0:47
