Google Maps

You'll be presented with the option to share your live location, route, and ETA with your favorite contacts. The company today added the ability to share the progress of your journey in real time with your friends and family on iOS.

It has been over a year since Google introduced the ability to share your real-time location within Google Maps with folks you choose, and now the feature is getting improved.

Google Maps has finally brought ETA sharing over to Apple's iOS.

For those at the receiving end follow the link and you'll get see the current progress of the trip including destination, eta, location (obviously) and a few other details.

However, a miscommunication between them led to one of the funniest dropped catches in the history of cricket. Shoaib Malik attended a show named Voice of Cricket , where he revealed a lot of exciting incidents.

You can also share it across 3rd party apps like Facebook Messenger, Line, WhatsApp, and more.

The setting lets users share their location with specific people for the duration of a trip. If you don't have the update there's no use spamming the Google Play Store, this looks like a server-side switch. Plus, trip sharing works on iOS just in case you should ever find yourself holding an iPhone for some reason.

Have you tried out this feature yet?
