Google Maps’ location-sharing feature
Now you can let your friends & family know where you are when you’re running late.
Google has been busy recently beefing up Maps. Beyond just using it for turn-by-turn directions, you can now use Maps to remember where you parked, find reviews for nearby restaurants and avoid heavily congested areas. Today, the search giant has revealed yet another Maps feature: location-sharing. With just a few taps in the app, you can now share your real-time location with friends and family. It’s a feature that can be handy when you’re running late to an appointment or if you simply want to keep your buddies abreast of your whereabouts.
