Interested in sharing a portion of your present location with a friend or colleague? iPhone users have the Find My app, which allows them to share their location with their contacts as well as share their location with the rest of the world via the internet.
In contrast, if you have an Android smartphone, or if you need to share your real-time location with someone who does, Google Maps enables you to share your real-time location on a momentary or continuous basis with that individual. Here's all you need to do to get it up and running.
Please provide your geographic location
Using the Google Maps app, you must first enable the function that allows you to share your location data with others before you can begin sharing data. The screenshots below explain how to quickly share your location with someone else using percentages. Click on Location Sharing from the drop-down menu beneath your profile icon in the top-right nook of your screen.
A display will tell you of the functionality of the feature; the faucet will have a display. To share your current location with others, select Share region from the drop-down menu. A panel will appear with numerous options for sharing your location.
You will be percentaged for a short length of time if you choose the default choice when you sign up. Consequently, if you're organising a get-together with someone and don't want them to have access to your area 24 hours a day, you can set a time limit on how long your area can be made available for sharing by allowing them to check in and out as they like during that time.
Use the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons on the left-hand side of the screen to make your region shared for as short as 15 minutes or as long as 24 hours, depending on your needs.
If you go to the bottom of the page and hit More, you may search through your list of contacts for a specific contact from a list of favourites. Alternatively, you can send a link through any of the countless communication applications that you use to communicate with others on the internet.
A shareable link will be generated as a result of selecting this option, allowing you to provide easy access to information in your local area. Until you manually flip it off to constantly percentage your region with close friends and family, select Location Sharing and select Until you manually flip it off to percentage your whereabouts until you make the decision to show it off, select Location Sharing and select Until you manually flip it off to percentage your whereabouts until you make the decision to show it off
It is possible to select a specific touch to share your location with; however, there is no option to create a shared link while using this option.
Once you've shared your location with as many people as possible with as little as a single touch, tap Location sharing to get a list of the people who have received your location information. Following that, you can continue to add additional persons to the database by pressing the New percentage button on your keyboard again. As an alternative, choose a touch's icon on the map and then tap the addition (+) button in the top-right corner of the screen to add that touch.
Examples of how to discuss your expected arrival time with a person while in flip navigation mode with the use of flips are shown in the following screenshots:
For a one-time journey, touch Directions, select a destination in Google Maps, and then hit Start to get an estimate of your arrival time based on your current location. In order to share your journey progress, swipe up and tap on the faucet. Using the touch feature, you may send someone an estimate of how far away you are from your vacation location. Simply choose the touch and send it to them. If you do not communicate your location with the navigation system, you will be unable to navigate. Additionally, you may manually turn it off by going to More > Stop sharing from the drop-down menu.
Turn off location sharing services manually if necessary
The following screenshots demonstrate how to turn off region sharing on your computer by hand: Choose a person's location on a map, or open the Location sharing option once more and pick their access at the bottom of the screen to share their location with them. Click on the Stop option if you wish to immediately stop sharing your location with others. Changing the length of time someone can see your location is as simple as pressing the Can see your region button, which is located where it reads "Can see your region."
The percentage of active hyperlinks can also be seen by selecting the Location sharing option from the drop-down menu. To make it immediately accessible, select Stop from the Sharing through hyperlink access drop-down option and press Enter.
Even if you direct Google to desist from sharing your location in this manner, the touch will still be available to visitors to your listing under the heading Location sharing. To totally remove the touch from your list, pick the things you wish to remove from the list, tap the three-dot icon, and then select Remove from list from the drop-down menu.
