HERE for Android has just been updated with more features to make the app better than ever.

Those of you taking part in the HERE for Android Beta program have been testing the ability to share your route with friends and family since last month. Now, we are proud to officially roll out the share route feature to all of our HERE for Android users.

It’s not just about sharing your destination or ETA, both of which have been possible since the HERE app for Android launched. Now, you can share your full route with directions, whether you’re travelling on foot, using transit or driving your car. When you’re planning a route, all you need to do is scroll up to see the Share button – tap it and you’ll be able to share the route via text, email and more – what could be easier?

This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of beta testers, though; your energetic participation and helpful feedback made it possible to promote route sharing from beta to production extra quickly. So, we’d like to say thank you.

Surfer Dude back on HERE for Android

That’s not the only new feature either. We’re also happy to tell you that Surfer Dude is back on HERE for Android.

The laid-back navigation voice has already made a comeback to the HERE app for iOS and now Android fans will be able to join in the fun. We like to think of his hippy, happy voice as one of the key ingredients for stress-free travel. ;-)

As the man himself told us earlier this year, “I’m back! I’ve been on an epic vacation but I’ve heard you. And man, I’ve missed you too. It’s just, sometimes, you just gotta chill bro”.

The latest HERE for Android update is available to download or update now.
