【手机因没电不通让家人担心?Google Maps 或许能让你分享剩余电量信息】不少人都有过以下这样的经历:担心某人晚归时有没有安全到家,但却不知道对方一路上手机剩下的电力还够不够。类似这样的情况,Google Maps 的开发团队已经注意到。在其最新的 Android beta 版中,可以找到沿途分享剩余电量功能。除此之外,在代码中似乎还出现了分享详细出行信息(几点几分到哪个站点)这样的新特性,同时常去的车站也可以添加捷径选项了。http://www.looooker.com/?p=53146

Google Maps may let you share your battery life status

Ever wanted to know if someone made it home safely, but didn't know if they had enough battery life to stay in touch along the way? You might not fret quite so much about it in the future. Android Police has spotted code in a Google Maps beta for Android that hints at sharing your remaining battery life alongside your location. You'd only get a generic range (likely because charge levels can change minute-to-minute), but this could be helpful if a friend's phone is running low on their way home from a night out.

Appropriately, the Maps code also alludes to sharing your mass transit trips with others, including the exact time you arrive at a given stop. There would also be shortcuts for favorite stations, potentially to influence Maps' directions.

It could be a while before you see these updates in an app you can use, assuming they show up at all. Hidden code like this can persist across multiple releases and might get cut if it's not ready or doesn't work as expected. However, the combination suggests that Google wants to do a lot more with location sharing than it has in the past -- it'd offer better insight into what you're actually doing.
