Google has officially announced a new Google Maps update and it now allows you to share your ETA with your dear ones. This also means that if you’re on your way to meet your dear one(s), you can share with them your live ETA so that they can know exactly how long you’re going to take to reach them.
So how exactly do you share your ETA?
For this, you simply need to start your navigation to your destination, tap on the ^ button (at the bottom) and choose Share Trip Progress option. With this, you will be able to share certain information like ETA, your live location, and the route you’ve taken.
The tech giant has also announced that the upcoming update will also support third-party apps like Facebook, WhatsApp, Line etc. So, you will be able to share your ETA with your phone contacts through WhatsApp and Line and Facebook friends. This list of compatible apps will soon be expanded, says Google.
