Even if you are very familiar with all the routes you can use to drive home or work, you should use Google Maps to find the fastest route under the current traffic conditions. If you work with Android, you can do it very quickly.
To quickly navigate to your home or work, simply long press on Google Maps on your home screen or in your app drawer, then tap "Home" or "Work" in the popup and navigation will begin right away. To speed things up, long press Home or Work and drag the shortcut to the home screen to create a special icon for it.
Note that this process also works for iPhones and can be accessed via 3D Touch. Select either "Start" or "Work". The Quick Action menu will be displayed. Remember, however, unlike the Android method, after you open Goggle Maps, you still need to click "Start" to start navigating, and you can not add the 1-tap link to your Home screen.
