Sharing Your Location and ETA in Google Maps is Much Better Now

The new option will allow you to share information like your live location, route, and ETA with anyone in your contact list. The improved trip sharing feature is similarly available for bicycling and walking. The company today added the ability to share the progress of your journey in real time with your friends and family on iOS. With this feature you can share your ETA with your loved ones and keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. The update also includes support for sharing across 3rd-party apps like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and more.

You can download the update for the app now via the Play Store or the App Store. Today they are rolling out an enhancement to their location/trip/'journey sharing' feature that makes sharing each trip quick and easy right from the navigation interface. You can also stop sharing manually as well.

Google released its "share your real-time location" feature for the Google Maps iOS app on Thursday. From here, tap on the ˄ button and then on "Share trip progress". You can check out Google's original marketing video for the feature below.
