Google Maps is great if you need to display a location in your content, could be your corporate address, you can do this using our Website plugin. The Website plugin works with anything that can be embedded online.

You can embed the map into your Play Digital Signage content the same way you embed a website: with the help of our Website Plugin.

How do I embed live traffic?

If you wish to display live traffic, we recommend using Waze live map as it integrates better than Google’s live map.

  1. Navigate to and move to the map area you want to display
  2. Click the “share” button at the bottom right
  3. Select the “Embed a map” tab
  4. Copy only the address inside “src” property (as you would in the Google Maps example above)
