First spotted by Android Police, Google has rolled out a new feature within the app - the ability to share your battery level.

This is why we wanted to ask you if you are fine with Google sharing your battery life as well as your location with your exes. And now Google Maps will also show the battery life remaining in the device.

If you're not using this Google Maps feature already, it's easy enough to set up.

Child thrown into Tampa river; mother charged with murder
Denson is accused of stealing a car from an auto fix shop, then parking the vehicle on North Rome Avenue, police said. A mom was charged with murder Thursday for throwing her 4-year-old daughter into a Florida river , reports said .

When you share your location with someone in the Google Maps app, it will show up on your friend's map, and they can then use that information to get directions to exactly where you are located. So you might want to be careful when telling someone you didn't pick up their call because your phone was dead, as they might already know the truth.

This update was originally reported by Android Police back in February but TechCrunch reports it's now rolling out to both Android and Apple iPhone devices. The previous implementation was less accurate, however.

Thermopylae Sciences & Technology (T-Sciences) today announced that it has achieved the Location-Based Services Specialization in the Google Cloud Partner Specialization Program. Now, it's much more precise, and it also displays a charging icon as well.

Bioengineered Lungs Transplanted Into Pigs
For this reason, future studies will look at long-term survival and maturation of the tissues as well as gas exchange capability. But the researchers said it may be possible to grow lungs to transplant into people within five to 10 years.

A quick test confirmed that the shared location displayed the phone's battery life accurately. Location sharing is a very helpful pre-embedded feature.

The feature is now live on Google Maps' mobile apps, so you can try it right away.

Thoughts about the new battery indicator feature? Just be aware that it will be active until you turn it off again.
