A few Months ago Google Map announced a new feature to Allow to share your real-time location with friends, family, and others. Now google map is smarter than the previous time, where we could only get distance and measurement location.
Next time you’re on your way or running late, you can share your real-time location and trip progress from navigation as well. During your next trip, tap the “More” button on the bottom of the navigation screen, and then tap “Share trip.” When you share your trip with people, they’ll see your expected arrival time and can follow your journey as you head toward your destination. Sharing automatically ends when you arrive. (Source Google Blog)
