Starting today, Google Maps users on iOS can easily share live location, route, and ETA with their contacts. This will also bring up a list of third-party apps that can be used to send your ETA to contacts, making it simpler to share your location.
The setting lets users share their location with specific people for the duration of a trip.
The process of accessing the feature is much the same as it was before.
Download the updated Google Maps app to enjoy this new improved journey sharing experience for driving, walking, and cycling navigation.
To enable the feature, you must tap on the "up arrow" button and then on "Share trip progress", after you have started navigating to a destination on the app. Plus, trip sharing works on iOS just in case you should ever find yourself holding an iPhone for some reason.
With journey sharing, you can easily share your location with friends and family as you are travelling. This will give them the ability to see where you are in real time, with constant updates as you progress.
