Google latitude friends not updating

Last week, Google announced new location sharing features in Google Maps that would allow you to easily share your current position momentarily or indefinitely with select people.

We've gone to great lengths to put this on as many smartphone devices as possible from day one so that most of the people you know will be able to use Latitude right away.It also follows Google's trend of decoupling options and features from Google .In the official announcement, Google said the feature would be rolling out "soon" worldwide, but didn't give an exact timeline, and we have yet to see it on our devices regardless of the version of Maps we're running.

I believe rather than reinventing the wheel, you can use one of the third party libraries that are easy to implement and in this case, battery efficient. You can add the following dependency in your build.gradle (app) to start using the library.With its latest update, Google Maps is introducing a real-time location sharer that will allow you to send your exact position to a contact either directly or through a messenger like Whats App.If you’re following Google Maps directions, you’ll be able to hit a ‘Share trip progress’ button, which will let your chosen contacts track exactly where you are on your journey and your ETA.Or you can share your exact location to help you and a friend find each other in a crowd.
