Google gps friend finder
Google has announced the launch of Google Latitude this morning, a new feature in Google Maps for mobile and iGoogle that lets you share your location with friends and family.
It’s very simple to use. Just ‘opt in’ to Latitude via your Google account and then you’ll be able to see icons of your peeps on Google Maps on your mobile or desktop. If you click on an icon, you’ll have the option to call, IM, text, or otherwise make contact. Best phone friend finder.
Google allows you complete control over your privacy in Latitude. Only friends and family you’ve selected at any given time will be able to see your location, and the icon location is only approximate. If you click on the icon, Google will return a precise location of you or your friend with turn-by-turn directions to get there.
Google Latitude is currently available in 27 countries and works with most popular handsets and your iGoogle homepage. Handsets include T-Mobile’s G1 or other Android-based phone, iPhone/iPod Touch, Blackberry, Windows Mobile 5.0+, and Nokia Symbian S60 devices. T-Mobile G1 users will have access rolled out over the coming days in the United States and overseas access will come soon after. Apple devices have a short waiting time as well.
You can download Google Maps for mobile with Latitude from your mobile device or browser by heading to http://google.com/latitude. Check out the demo video below and more screenshots after the jump.
