Google Mapsâ€™ Location Sharing Gets Battery Percentage Feature
Just few people are familiar with location sharing on Google maps. Google Mapsâ€™ location sharing is a feature that works great when you want to keep track of where people are at a particular time.
For example, if you want to know the location of your worker, simply ask them to share his/her location. Or he is on his way from a trip and you need to meet up with him, this feature is particularly useful.
Recent, this feature received an update and a tiny little functionality was added that makes it a lot more useful.
How It Works
Now, when someone shares their location with you, the Maps app will not only show you where they are but also display their phoneâ€™s battery status.
That way, you will know if their phone is about to die and stop updating their location. Similarly, you can also infer why their phone isnâ€™t reachable.
The feature is now live on Google Mapsâ€™ mobile apps, so you can try it right now.
