Following revelations that several major companies, Google included, have quietly removed Apple Watch support from their iOS apps, the search giant’s now confirmed that Apple Watch support will be returning to Maps for iOS.
Google Maps for iPhone and iPad has gained a useful parking-reminder feature that Apple Maps implemented back in September 2016. Like with Apple Maps, Google’s version “just works” without any action required on your part.
Google recently introduced a location-sharing feature in the mobile Google Maps app that’s somewhat similar in functionality to Apple’s Find My Friends app. On your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Google Maps allows you to share your location with others for up to 72 hours, choose who can see where you are, hide other people’s locations from a map and more.
In this step-by-step tutorial, you’ll learn how to share your real-time location on Google Maps with friends and family in case you’d like to let them know where you are and when you’ll get there.
