Google Releases 'Trusted Contacts' App for iOS

Google Releases 'Trusted Contacts' App for iOS

Google has brought its Trusted Contacts personal safety app for emergencies to Apple's mobile devices.

Previously, contacts could only be added by email, but now Trusted Contacts for Android lets you add people via their phone number as well. 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.

The document will be handed over to the Senate, where it enjoys widespread support from both Democrats and Republicans. The member States of the european Union will discuss a possible answer at a meeting Wednesday in Brussels .

It's worth noting here that users can deny a request to share their location, but if they don't respond it will be automatically shared at a pre-determined time after the request is made.

The app, which launched on Android a year ago, lets you set up select or "trusted contacts" who can then check whether you're online and moving around. Earlier, the limit was set to five minutes but now users can choose anything between sharing the location immediately to waiting up to an hour. If you need to ask for someone's location or share your own, everyone will get the information. But because I'll be alerted to requests, I'd happily add them to this app.

However, it is still unavailable for pre-order, which created speculations that the release has been put off until a later date. Phil Spencer also told fans that the Crackdown 3 will be presented with a "good demo" at the Gamescom next month.

Trusted Contacts also received a few updates that benefit existing Android users. This will allow users to easily enable permanent location sharing with selected contacts and find them directly within Google Maps.

With this update, Trusted Contacts is available in nine new languages for a total of 25 worldwide: Amharic (Ethiopia), Greek (Greece), Persian (Iran), Bahasa (Indonesia), Macedonian (Macedonia), Burmese (Myanmar), Nepali (Nepal), Serbian (Serbia) and Urdu (Pakistan).
