Google Maps Can Now Share Your Location With Friends in Real

Parking on Google Maps

It can also be restrictive and annoying or, in a worst-case scenario, abusive and controlling.

After pinning your location, it prompts you to write some parking notes.

In the application, the feature is called "Parking Location" and it creates a card that'll show you the exact location where you parked by allowing you to take pictures of the surroundings and take notes and placing a blue dot at that exact spot. When you share your trip with people, they'll see your expected arrival time and can follow your journey as you head toward your destination.

Marvel defends casting white actor for Iron Fist role
But it's distractingly incongruous in Iron Fist , which follows a subdued, realistic aesthetic with very few comic book elements. The Iron Fist is a living weapon, just as in the comics; but crucially, he's a weapon forged to be used against the Hand.

You can become a tester by clicking a link on the Google Maps app in the app store or Google Play. The new feature offers a lot of fun-and as a matter of fact, "you can tap the share button to get a link and start flexing your local knowledge muscles" when your friends and families come into town. Sharing will turn itself off once you arrive. You can easily "unhide" them again if you want to know where they are. Additionally, you always have the option of ending sharing whenever you want, and you'll always know when you're sharing your location with someone. This is not only time-effective, but will also save you from potential fines. After users disconnected their phone from those auto tools, Apple presumed they were parked. It's a bit like Apple's Find My Friends app, but we think it'll be way more useful built into Maps rather than needing to do not forget to open a second app. Say you have a friend who's a bit of the oversharing type, and you really have no desire to see where he or she is all the time.

That's, of course, a lot of steps to share your location. For example, I pick my wife up at a mass transit station every day when she comes home from work. You can broadcast your whereabouts for a set period of time (between 15 minutes and 3 days) or indefinitely.

There are other benefits as well. And if you're on timed parking, you can put how much time you're allotted and when it's nearing its expiration, you will get a notification from Google Maps.
