ETA in real time on Google Maps for iOS
Lucky Android App users, the ETA in real time on Google Maps has been on Android since 2017. In the promo video below, you will find the specific use of this ETA sharing feature. The ETA or Estimated Time on Arrival is a cool feature that lets you know your friends’ whereabouts.
It is not a new feature though, it has long been around with some navigation apps like Waze and Citymapper. In this new update, users can use the ETA in real time sharing with other third-party apps. This includes applications like Facebook Messenger, Line, and WhatsApp.
A new feature to Android devices too. To access it, you go to the ˄ button —> “Share trip progress.” The journey sharing is only available when you are navigating by driving, cycling or walking. And once you arrive at your destination, the navigation automatically stops.
