This location history page has actually been available for several years, since Google first rolled it out as part of Latitude, its now-defunct location-sharing app.
Cnet noticed it in December, 2013, Tech Crunch picked it up a few days later, and now noticed it last week.
Also of note is the redesigned search results page, which replaces the tabs of yesteryear with buttons you can tap to view the location on a map, call up directions, dial, or engage Street View.
When you open the profile page for a search result, you're now able to swipe right and left to see full-page profiles for the preceding and following results.
While a little clunky and distracting depending on how cluttered your screen is, it's neat that you can still manage to zoom in and out.
Its sole purpose was to send locations to Google in order to maintain an accurate and timely history with Latitude.

I would like a place to discuss the app publicly, discuss troubleshooting solutions, bugs, or motivate ideas and improvements.
Users take their devices everywhere and are constantly using them on the go, and as developers we can capitalize on that by providing a more contextual experience based on their current location.
Accessing the current location of an Android device is easier than ever, but it can still be a little tricky, especially for the first time.
