Google Maps will Now Notify When You Reaches or Leave Home to your Family

Google Maps has received a bunch of updates recently. Indian users have finally received the Street View on Google Maps but there are a couple of updates such as the immersive view, new cycling route information as well as the location sharing information. Google Maps already allows users
to share their locations but the new feature will let users send alerts to their contacts when they have arrived or left a destination.

The location-sharing feature on Google Maps has got an interesting update. Along with sharing their live location, the users can now set a notification to alert the person when you have arrived or left a destination.

“With new location sharing notifications, you can see when a loved one has arrived or left a place so you can more easily coordinate schedules and have peace of mind. Say you’re headed to a concert with a group of friends. If they’ve already chosen to share their location with you, you can set a notification for the concert venue’s address so you can see when they’ve arrived and meet up quickly. You could also set a notification to see when they’ve left the venue — just in case you get split up,” Google noted in a blog post.

Google has made the feature secure as notification can only be set by the person who has already agreed to share their location with you. So if you are thinking you can secretly spy on someone using Google Maps, that would not be quite possible. The person who has shared their location with you will receive multiple reminders to let them know — including both a push notification in the Maps app and an email, along with recurring monthly emails. You will have the control to stop sharing your location or block someone from setting notifications altogether.
