There are times when you may need to find out the distance in between 2 places or points you located on google maps. Previously there were no options in google maps which can allow you to find the distance in between 2 points.
A new distance measurement tool has been added to google maps as beta labs features, which allows you to measure the distance in between two parts on earth. But you will need to explicitly enable this feature in google maps.
