You're not a fan of Google saving your location history while using Google Maps? This is indeed a feature that some find somewhat invasive in terms of privacy, but the good news is that in an upcoming Google Maps update, Google will set it up so that the app automatically deletes location history at regular intervals , [1
Not much is known about the feature at the moment, but the discovery in the APK has shown that it's an automated process that "continuously" destroys location history for a given Google Account. However, it does not specify how often this deletion is performed, but it seems that users will be able to control exactly how much of their location history they want to keep and how much they want to delete.
This might be a good feature for users who want to automatically delete their location history from time to time without having to think about it. If you want Google to stop tracking you completely, you can read our guide here.
