New Update!! Now You Can Share Your Live Location With Google Maps

Users of Google Maps will be able to share their current location in real time with their close friends and family, much like they can do with WhatsApp. You can use the ‘Location Sharing’ function on PC, iOS, and Android to share your location with contacts. Just open the app on your iPad, iPhone, or Android to share your location.

Users of Google Maps can also choose how long to reveal their position. You can share your location with others for a maximum of one day, or until the recipient manually disables location sharing. In addition, they have the option to change the intervals of time between 15 and 30 and 45 minutes, as well as 1 and 2 hours and beyond. 

The receivers will be able to see if you are charging the smartphone or what state the battery is in. If you are navigating to a place, you will also be able to communicate your ETA (Expected Time of Arrival). 

How To Share Your Current Location On An iOS Or Android Google Map

The steps to share a live location on Google Maps are as follows:

  1. Open the Google Maps application and select your profile image located in the upper right corner.
  2. Select the “Share location” option after selecting the “Location Sharing” category.
  3. Decide how long you want to share the location.
  4. Choose the person you wish to share the location with, either through links on Google or in third-party apps like WhatsApp.
  5. After that, the receiver will be able to see your exact location and battery percentage.

Google has made it clear in their official blog post that even when you are not using any Google applications, the person you have shared your location with will be able to view your name, photo, and exact device position. They’ll be able to see both your estimated arrival time and your departure time.
