Google Maps Gets Real Time Journey Tracking on iOS

Posted on October 18, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Google, iOS with 8 Comments

Google Maps is getting a massive new feature on iPhones today. The company today added the ability to share the progress of your journey in real time with your friends and family on iOS.

Journey sharing has been available on Android in the past.

With journey sharing, you can easily share your location with friends and family as you are travelling. When enabled, the feature will share your destination, the directions for your journey, as well as your device’s battery life. The person you are sharing your location with can also choose to share their own location with you, which is really helpful when you trying to meet a friend in a new area.

With today’s update, Google is also bringing the ability to share your journey progress to third-party apps, on both Android and iOS.
