Google Maps' new feature can help others 'track' your smartphone's battery

Google My Maps is very easy to use

However, if those people suddenly dropped off the grid, there was no way of distinguishing whether that was because their phone battery died or something more nefarious had happened. The feature aims to eliminate stress and anxiety from a lack of response when batteries are running low.

The new feature is said to work in accordance with the location sharing feature of Google Maps. The new feature will enable users to see the percentage of battery left on the device. According to a report by Android Police, the battery sharing feature has been around for sometime but was not visible to everyone.
