Google's Trusted Contacts app rolled out for iOS

Google Trusted Contacts iOS app goes live: Android version updated

Truecaller on Wednesday released an update for iOS that introduces Google Duo video calling from within the app, a feature the caller ID service had announced back in March following its tie-up with Google. The app first launched on Android previous year.

The Trusted Contact app from search engine giant can automatically share your status and location with your friends or loved ones.

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. Enough to tell them where you are at all times - viewable via an app?

These include the ability to control how quickly you share your location, even when you're out of signal. Users can also add trusted contacts by their phone number. The default setting had been five minutes, but now the response time can be set at any time from immediately to an hour.

Increases in app revenue indicate that users are increasingly signing up for Netflix on their mobile devices, and particularly through Apple's App Store. Trusted Contacts is just one of the many apps that make location sharing easy. Lastly, support for new languages has been added as well, which means Trusted Contacts is now available in nine additional languages: Amharic (Ethiopia), Greek (Greece), Persian (Iran), Bahasa (Indonesia), Macedonian (Macedonia), Burmese (Myanmar), Nepali (Nepal), Serbian (Serbia) and Urdu (Pakistan). Despite being the seventh-highest earning app in the Google Play store, Netflix's first-place finish on the App Store lifted it to the top spot for overall app revenue.
