Google Maps Brings Real-Time ETA ‘Journey Sharing’ to iOS

And now that feature is rolling out for iOS users as well.

"Journey Sharing" is a feature that the Google Maps team rolled out for Android users a year ago, which allows for folks to share their real-time location with those they approve.

"Getting where you need to go is important, but making it to your destination safe and sound is the most important thing of all".

Google has just announced that Maps is now much better at allowing users to share their ETAs with the loved ones. The new option will allow you to share information like your live location, route, and ETA with anyone in your contact list. Journey sharing is also available for driving, walking, and cycling navigation with today's update. Simply start navigation, then look for "Share trip progress" where the ^ arrow is.

Google also said the feature also now supports third-party apps, so you can send your ETA via Facebook Messenger, Line or WhatsApp. After sharing, your chosen contacts will be able to watch your progress in real time via Maps, and then sharing automatically ends.

Google's primary pitch today is that trip sharing works on Maps for iOS now.

With journey sharing, you can easily share your location with friends and family as you are travelling. You can check out Google's original marketing video for the feature below.
