Google Maps ETA Sharing Comes To iOS

Google Maps for iOS gains real-time ETA and journey sharing

From here, you'll be able to share your live location, route, and ETA with any contact you have.

Journey sharing is rolling out for driving, walking, and cycling navigation on Android and iOS for those of you in "mixed" households. But how exactly can you share your ETA with your friends?

"Getting where you need to go is important, but making it to your destination safe and sound is the most important thing of all". You can now share your trip progress (as opposed to just your location) via third-party apps.

Google has added a new feature to Google Maps for iOS: the ability to send an ETA to someone else.

There's an obvious benefit to the feature: users can keep track of someone whose trip may otherwise be concerning.

To enable the feature, you must tap on the "up arrow" button and then on "Share trip progress", after you have started navigating to a destination on the app. Rather than having to guess when they'll show up or hope for an update during a stop, the driver can share their live location with users before leaving, dedicating their full attention to the road. Check your Play Store or App Store for the latest version of Google Maps.

Have you tried out this feature yet?
