  • Google Maps releases real-time location sharing for iPhone

This new improvement in Google Maps on Android and iOS will make it easier to share your ETA with loved ones.

As far as the kinds of trips that can be shared are concerned, these are driving, walking, and cycling navigation. But how exactly can you share your ETA with your friends? This will give them the ability to see where you are in real time, with constant updates as you progress.

"Getting where you need to go is important, but making it to your destination safe and sound is the most important thing of all".

Google released its "share your real-time location" feature for the Google Maps iOS app on Thursday.

Third-party app support is now on the table, with Google Maps bringing the ability to share your journey within Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, CityMapper, and other apps.

There's an obvious benefit to the feature: users can keep track of someone whose trip may otherwise be concerning. Plus, trip sharing works on iOS just in case you should ever find yourself holding an iPhone for some reason. You can check out Google's original marketing video for the feature below.
