How to share your location on a trip with Google Maps

Google Maps

Google Maps is the navigation application par excellence on Android. Many users use it when they travel. Something that is very comfortable, thanks to functions in it such as reporting radars or accidents, which allow us to always be aware of what is happening on the road. You may take a trip to visit a person, and you want that person to know where you're going on that road. This is something that can be done.

Because in Google Maps we find the possibility to share our location, in addition to sharing sites with other users. But in this way, another person or a group of people can know where we are on our trip. It is very easy to use this function.

This is a function that also allows us to share this location at that time, to know how high we are on our trip, without having to leave the navigation mode. It is something that certainly allows a really comfortable operation for users. With this function in Google Maps, we will be able to share this location in social networks or in messaging applications in a very simple way.

Therefore, you just have to follow a couple of steps inside the app on Android. You will not have any problem to make use of it. You just have to follow the steps shown below:

There are cases in which you may not get the icon, then press on the screen, so that these icons will come out again. When we click on this option, a series of new options will appear under the menu. We will be able to see that the First of the options that comes out in this list is called Say where are you going. This is the function that interests us right now.
