Google Maps reveals real-time location sharing for Android and iOS

Google Maps will soon let users on Android and iOS share their real-time location with friends, family, and colleagues β€” all while trying to keep a mindful eye on privacy.

When the feature rolls out β€œsoon worldwide,” you’ll be able to slide out the side menu or just tap the blue dot marking where you are and choose β€œshare location.”

From there, you choose who you want to be share your precise location with and for how long.

That interval ranges from 15 minutes to 3 days, but there’s no permanent option to speak of.
