Google announced Wednesday that it has updated its Google Maps application, adding that the site sharing feature is directly linked to the application, coupled with today’s announcement during an event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for a number of updates to Allo, Duo and Photos.

Once the feature is reached, Android users and iOS allow Google Maps to share their location for a specified time period, such as half an hour or hour, and can turn off their location sharing with specific people at any time.

The user can choose to share his or her geographic location while roaming in certain places and then stop sharing his location when he arrives at the desired location. In addition, the location of people who share their location with the user can be disposed of.

The Maps app permanently works on the user’s news when their location information is shared, and information about the user’s location conflict appears in the My Activity activity dashboard from Google.

Other companies offer similar means to facilitate location sharing. Apple offers this feature by applying it to IOS and Mac Maps, and previously provided by FaceBook and accurately within the Nearby Friends feature that it eventually revised, An experimental application of this feature in 2015 is called SquadWatch.

Google has recently stepped up its mapping service by adding information on how local events affect traffic and traffic, how difficult it is to find a place to stop a car in an area, and Google Maps can soon track where the car stops on Android devices.
