Google Releases 'Trusted Contacts' App for iOS

Google Releases 'Trusted Contacts' App for iOS

Also noteworthy is what's under the hood: This is the first version of the app that's universal for iOS devices, meaning that the same code is at work across the iPad, iPhone, and even the Apple Watch. The company launched this unbelievable app a year ago for Android users. If everything's fine, you can deny the request.

The company has also embedded an automatic response system in the app which helps one to share location to trusted contacts in case you didn't respond within a time limit. The app is meant for emergency situations or everyday situations if a contact wants to know you're OK. Users can now proactively share their location with their in-group or search for the last place a friend or loved one was active on their phone if they suddenly go silent, no matter their OS. Other changes to the app include the ability to add trusted contacts by phone number, and the addition of nine new languages for a total of 25 supported. Enough to tell them where you are at all times - viewable via an app? This is compared to the previous 5-minute default. For example, if I'm organising a cycling club ride, it would be handy to share my location on the day of a ride to make it easier for everyone to find me at the start. If they accept, then they become a trusted contact and you'll see their name and profile picture in your app from then on. Finally, the app has been updated with new language support: there's now Burmese, Bahasa, Macedonian, Nepali, Urdu, Serbian, Persian, Amharic, and Greek.
