Google Maps update adds option to share your ETA across third-party apps
Google has just announced that Maps is now much better at allowing users to share their ETAs with the loved ones. But how exactly can you share your ETA with your friends?

It's pretty easy. Simply start navigating to a destination, tap on the ^ button and then choose “Share trip progress.” The new option will allow you to share information like your live location, route, and ETA with anyone in your contact list.

Moreover, Google announced that the latest update brings support for third-party apps, which means that you can share your ETA across three apps: Facebook Messenger, Line, and WhatsApp. The list of compatible apps will be expanded in the future, so don't fret if your favorite messenger is not among the supported ones yet.

As mentioned earlier, the new improved sharing feature is now available for driving, walking, and cycling navigation on Android and iOS, so make sure to update your Google Maps app to benefit from the enhanced sharing experience.
