I have an Android phone (Nexus 6P) and my wife has an iPhone 6.

We would like to have the same functionality as Find My Friends offers, without both having iPhones. Thus, we share each other's location through Google.

I have no problem seeing her location on my Android.

Previously, my wife could see my location using the iPhone Google+ app. There used to be a Locations tab in the app, showing my location. Now, the Location tab is gone. The Google support article "See friends' locations on a map" is obsolete.

Is there any other way on an iPhone to see someone else's location information?

We both have location history, reporting and sharing in Google turned on. My wife has both the Google+ and the Google app installed and running on the iPhone (and is logged in, of course).

  • Google+ probably isn't the best solution here, especially since it's being slowly phased out inc.com/john-brandon/… – owlswipe Jul 8 '16 at 21:35

My family—one Nexus 6P user and two iPhone 6 users—is really happy with Life360. It provides just the same service as Find My Friends (letting family members view each other's current location), just cross-platform. It isn't battery intensive, works great, and even has some additional features as compared to Find My Friends.

Life360 is free on Google Play and the App Store.

  • Interesting idea. Not a completely free app, though. – Klas Mellbourn Jul 8 '16 at 5:59
  • @KlasMellbourn Everything you can do with Find Friends is free with Life360; the paid tier just gets you added perks! We've been using the free tier for months and have loved it, it has not once let us down. – owlswipe Jul 8 '16 at 12:40

For Android, try https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=se.bjuremo.hereiam.lite

It can share with email, text messages or through other apps
