Google Maps for iOS gets real-time ETA sharing

Google Maps iOS

Google is rolling out the ability to share ETA in real-time when you are about to step out so you can focus more on the road and less on the phone. This feature is rolling out iOS.

Once you start the navigation to your destination, you will see a new option; “Share trip progress.” From here you’ll be able to share your live location, route, and ETA with all your contacts. It allows for sharing across 3rd party apps like Facebook Messenger, Line, WhatsApp, and more. Once your journey ends, you’ll automatically stop sharing your location.

Improved journey sharing is now available for driving, walking, and cycling navigation on Android and iOS. The update is rolling out to iOS and is also available for Android.
