Ways to Share Real-Time Data and Locations Using Google Maps
When you use Google Maps, you can share a specific location, a map, or directions to others. That means you can send out a Street View image to help someone find where they need to be. You can also let people know where an address, a business, or any other place on the map is with this feature.
What you are unable to share with Google Maps is the information about your saved locations, and this data is kept private. The current app does not allow you to share an image or screenshot of a map or one which includes a specific measurement of distance.
How to Share Information with Google Maps
If you want to share information from Google Maps to other people, then the first step is to open the app on your mobile device.
You will then want to search for a place. Once you find the location you wish to share, then touch the map with a long press to drop a pin.
Then look to the bottom of your screen. You will want to tap the name or the address of the location where you placed the pin. Then tap the “Share” icon. You might not see it on some devices, so you can find it through the “More” link, which is three vertical periods.
Once you get to this point, you can choose the app where you wish to share the Google Maps location.
How to Share Real-Time Information
Google Maps allows you to share real-time location information with your friends, but you cannot do this trough Maps Go. You will need to add the Gmail address of the individual to your contacts before this feature will work.
Then sign in through the Google Maps app. You will need to go through the menu to the “Location Sharing” option. You can then choose how long you wish to share your location. Select the people who need your site, and then tap on the “Share” command.
You can also copy a link to your real-time location to send to people if they do not have a Google account.
Once you no longer need to continue sharing, remove the people from the list.
