Google Maps' New Feature: Yay or Nay?

Google Maps is getting a pretty awesome new feature on Android, iOS, and the web. Once it opens, you'll be able to select who to share with and how long you want them to have access to your location. Tap "Share" and your location dot appears on the other person's map. While you're actively sharing your location, there will be an icon above the compass. Once you arrive to your destination, sharing automatically stops.

In a day, there is so much to be mindful of - plans, schedules, errands, - that some people simply forget other crucial things, such as where they parked their vehicle.

Never again will you have to wander a parking lot in search of your vehicle-or so Google hopes. If you've ever found yourself confounded by this annoying problem, you know what a drag it can be to start hunting around a vast parking lot, laden with. Google will then present you with a new menu offering "save your parking" that lets you store all the info you need to find your auto, reports ArsTechnica.

A Google spokesperson said: "We're testing out a new parking feature and hope to bring it to users worldwide soon". Currently, this feature is only available on Android and no word as to when it will come to iOS. Simply opening the notification allows them to not only see your location but also in return share their exact coordinates.

Alternatively, you have the option to enable it from the turn-by-turn navigation screen.

You can also share your route with a friend. But Google Maps is by far the most-used app for directions, and its ETA sharing is unique.

"When you're sharing your location, the people you've chosen to share with will see you on their map", Resnick explained.

It also has a setting that allows you to shut down your location whenever you choose to do it manually, plus you can shut it off before the scheduled time if you wish to do so.
