With plus codes you can share any location – your home, a store, a meeting place – even if there are no streets. Using plus codes, friends, family, and service providers will find your home without having to rely on landmarks or asking for directions along the way.

You can share a plus code any way you want, a few examples include:
To search for a place using a plus code, use the plus code like an address.
You can use a plus code with a town or city, such as X4HP+M5 Cairo, or with an area code, such as 7GXHX4HP+M5. When you are near a place, you won’t need to include the area code. For example, you can simply search for X4HP+M5.
