Google Maps Just Added Real-time Location Sharing
Google Maps announced a new feature on Wednesday that could make traveling with and meeting up with friends or family much easier.
To share your current location, open the side menu or tap the blue dot that represents where you are. There is a “Share Location” option, which will then let you choose who to share with, whether that's a Google contact or anyone you're in touch with on messenger apps.
After you send it, the other person will be able to see you on their map. While you're actively sharing your location, there will be an icon above the compass.
You can also share your location while in navigation mode, and the other person can get updates on when you'll arrive. In that case, sharing ends once you arrive.
