How to share your location on Google Maps

Reading Time: 2 minutes

For when you’re *actually* on the way, not just hopping in the shower.

If you’re meeting up with friends, sharing your location is a hell of a handy way to save you screeching into your phone, ‘Wait, what can you SEEEEEE?’ Switching on Find My has become a staple of Gen Z friendship and location sharing through various apps has long functioned as all-ages safety method, though Taylor Swift’s continued location sharing with her ex had us perplexed — you can (and probably should) turn that off.

As of January 2024, Google Maps now allows you to share your location right there in the app on Android or iOS.

As Google notes, when sharing your location on Google Maps you may get a warning for a few reasons, including your age (if you’re under 13 you can’t set up a Google account, and if you’re under 18 you can’t share your location for longer than 24 hours), or whether your account is managed by a parent or guardian in the Family Link app.

You should also be aware that when you share your location on Google Maps, the person you’re sharing with will be able to see details beyond your location including your name, photo, how much battery you have left, and (if you’ve chosen to share it) your estimated arrival time. So just keep that in mind.

Of course, there’s a darker side to sharing your location, so it’s completely up to you who you choose to share your location with and how long for. And never, ever share your location on a dating app.

So, now you’ve got all the info, there are two ways to share your location on Google Maps: One when your friend has a Google account and one when they don’t.

And now for those who don’t have Gmail…

In a neat feature for punctual folks, but a terrible idea for those who like to send the ol’ ‘just leaving’ text as you’re getting in the shower, you can also share your estimated time of arrival within Google Maps.

Simply punch in your location into Google Maps search, select your transport method, and start navigation.

Once you’re up and away, tap the navigation menu at the bottom of the screen (where it says how long it’ll take) and tap ‘Share trip progress’. You can then pick which of your contacts to share it with or choose to copy it from ‘more options’ and send it via messaging app.

While you’re here, we’ve got guides for how to turn your location off and on with your iPhone, how to download Google Maps, how to turn on 3D buildings in navigation, how to save locations, and other Google Maps tips and tricks.
