Google Maps location sharing now adds phone`s battery life

The web interface is more complete

This spring, it was suddenly rebranded on Google Maps to a name few had heard: the East Cut.

That way, rather than sending out regular ETA updates, users can simply open Google Maps and see for themselves where you are.

Now, as per a Google executive, the company is expected to introduce more features for the Google Maps specifically for the Indian users soon. Google had introduced a new feature called the motorcycle or the two-wheeler mode exclusively for the Indian consumers back in December a year ago. Keep in that mind before telling friends you didn't respond because you were running out of battery, they'll know if you're lying.

You might already be aware of the ability within Google Maps to actively share your location with loved ones, friends and family members.

Click on location sharing from the menu. "When checking a contact's location, there's now a battery icon right next to the distance", Android Police writes.

To share your location in Google Maps, all you need to do is tap and hold on any location to drop a pin. You'll now be able to reference Google Maps to ease the situation a little bit. It's not clear if you can turn the battery life indicator off if you don't want to share that information. Instead, it showed a range of what someone's battery was between - "Brian's battery level is between 50 percent and 75 percent and is charging".

Data about the battery level can be useful in emergency situations. You can check out the new feature on both iOS and Android versions of the app today.

Users can check this by sharing their location with their friends on Google Maps.
