At home ” news » Google’s app for trusted contacts no longerAt some point in 2016, Google launched the Trusted Contacts app. Google’s idea behind starting such an app was to help people share their status with loved ones. This app was available for both iOS and Android. With the help of this app you can share your location and whereabouts with those who have been marked as “trusted contacts” in your address book.
According to the latest information, Google has completely discontinued its trusted contacts app. The app cannot be found in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The Trusted Contacts website also reported that the application would be gone after December 1
Existing users will not be able to use the app any longer than December 1st. Users who need a copy of all of their trusted contacts have until December 1st to download them from the website.
The Trusted Contacts app has proven very useful, especially for users who want to check on their close friends and relatives to make sure they are safe. According to Google, the location sharing feature is now included in the Google Maps application. The technology giant appeals to all users to test the function in Google Maps. However, the use cases of the feature in the Trusted App application do not match the use cases of the Location Sharing feature in the Google Maps application.
The only purpose of trusted contacts was to simply share the contact’s exact location with no social exposure. The app had all the information straight from all activities related to the trusted people. The device’s battery location was also displayed.
With the “Trusted Contacts” app, users can share their location with loved ones if they feel unsafe at any time or in an emergency. Others can ask the user to share their location with them in an emergency. An important fact about this app was the opt-out model on which it was based. If for some reason the user was unable to share their location with loved ones, the location will still be shared even if prompted to do so.
Over time, features such as setting time limits and permanent location sharing have also become available in the Trusted Contacts app. There have been no updates for the “Trusted Contacts” app for a long time.
If Google shuts down any other of its apps, it looks like the tech giant may inadvertently cause such surprises. Users who are still interested in finding out what the Trusted Contacts app is all about can still do so by downloading the latest version of the app from APK Mirror. This option would only be possible until December 1st.
