“If you want someone to know where you are at any time you should access the Share option location. The next step is to choose with whom do you share your position on the map and how long the function will be active. People to whom you gave your position on the map will see you on their map. The fact that you shared your position on the map will be indicated by an icon that will appear above the compass on the map. You can stop share location function at any time, “explains Google location sharing function.
Location sharing service is also available when using the navigation function of Google Maps.
“If you are late for a meeting, you can send the estimated time for your destination, the other person to know when you will arrive. Person (or persons) whom you have shared this information will see in real time how much time you get up and you can follow the road to the destination. Sharing ends automatically when you reach your destination, “says Google.
Location sharing can be done with anyone, people can be selected from phone contacts or Google contacts.
