  • Google Maps makes it easier to share your ETA with loved ones

In an update headed out to users this week, you'll see an improved experience when sharing your location, ETA, and route.

And now that feature is rolling out for iOS users as well.

As far as the kinds of trips that can be shared are concerned, these are driving, walking, and cycling navigation. The company today added the ability to share the progress of your journey in real time with your friends and family on iOS.

To share your location using Google Maps' live trip sharing, simply tap on the? button and then on "Share trip progress" after you've started navigating to your destination. Moreover, Google announced that the latest update brings support for third-party apps, which means that you can share your ETA across three apps: Facebook Messenger, Line, and WhatsApp. You'll select those to share with from your favorite contacts. Once you reach your destination, Google Maps will automatically stop sharing your location.

This update - available via the Play Store and the App Store now - makes sharing your location easier by eliminating the need to manually send it via a separate text message.
