Google Maps location sharing feature is great app when you want to keep track of where your kids are, or to locate your friends while on a road trip. And now with a recent update it has become more useful.
With the new update now when someone shares their location with you, the Maps app will not only show you where they are, but also display their phone’s battery status. That way, you’ll know if their phone is about to die and stop updating their location. Similarly, you can also infer why their phone isn’t reachable.
The feature is now rolling out on Google Maps mobile apps, so you can try it right away.
