Google Maps Adds Better ETA Sharing

Posted by at 4:07 pm on October 18, 2018

Google has made it easier for people to share their estimated time of arrival with others.

With the update, people can tap the ^ button in Maps to begin sharing their trip progress, which can include their live location, route, and ETA.

The update allows live ETA info to be pushed via Gmail, SMS, and third-party apps, such as Facebook Messenger, Line, and WhatsApp.

Once the journey is complete, the user automatically stops sharing their location. Further, people can now share live driving, bicycling, and walking journeys.

This new tool is in the latest version of Google Maps for Android and iOS.
