Google's Trusted Contacts safety app is now available for iOS

Google's Trusted Contacts safety app is now available for iOS”

Google has updated its Trusted Contact app with some noteworthy new features and has also made the app available on iOS devices. At 56%, total app revenue growth over the past year was just a quarter of what Netflix posted, implying that the subscription video service is doing a great job at signing users up to its platform on mobile.

When someone requests your info, you can choose to allow your location to be shared immediately, or you can opt to have a request pop up for manual approval.

The activity status allows friends and family to passively see that you are safe and well, while the latter option is more about getting specifics on exactly where you are - this could be useful for knowing when to start cooking, or it could be used to allay fears or seek help when you're unable to answer your phone. But because I'll be alerted to requests, I'd happily add them to this app.

These include the ability to control how quickly you share your location, even when you're out of signal. The app is meant for emergency situations or everyday situations if a contact wants to know you're OK. One can expand time limit of automatic reply from 5 minutes up to an hour. Users can also add trusted contacts by their phone number.
