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

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

The feature was recently updated for Android users back in August and now it can be used from an iPhone, as well.

You can still use Google Maps to keep tabs on your friends and family, and vice versa, and share your ETA to your destination, the route you're taking, and your live location. The improved trip sharing feature is similarly available for bicycling and walking.

‘It certainly looks like’ Khashoggi is dead, consequences will be ‘severe’
In what the Post called his last piece for the newspaper, Khashoggi drew criticism on the Middle East's lack of a free press. The Saudi government has strongly denied having anything to do with the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi .

Google has just announced that Maps is now much better at allowing users to share their ETAs with the loved ones. Check your Play Store or App Store for the latest version of Google Maps. 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. You'll select those to share with from your favorite contacts.

After you've started navigating to a destination, tap on the? button and then on "Share trip progress". 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 check out Google's original marketing video for the feature below.
