Google to remove the Trusted Contact app from PlayStore and App Store.

In 2016, Google launched its popular app Trusted contact, which allowed the user to share their location and device activity with certain content on their phone. The app was available for both Android and Apple customers. However, the company has now announced that it will stop support for the app after December 1. Before this, Google also stopped the support for Google Latitude and Google+ Location Sharing, which provided some similar features to the users. 

In an e-mail to “The Verge“, the company said that, “Over three years ago, we launched the Trusted Contacts app as a way to help people stay up to date with their loved ones’ whereabouts. Since then, we’ve built this functionality directly into Google Maps with Location Sharing – making it even easier to share your live location with trusted friends and family“. They also added that “As a result, the Trusted Contacts app will be removed from the App Store and Play Store today and will stop being supported after December 1, 2020. If the app is installed on your device, you can continue to use it until then.

If you have created trusted contacts, you can download them from the trusted contacts page until December 1, 2020. After that date, the Trusted Contact app will no longer work and your trusted contacts will be unable to see the live location you are sharing with them from the app,“. Google has been trying to integrate multiple of its products into a single app and using the same principle, they have added the same features to the Google Maps apps. It is the major reason why they do not this that Trusted contact need to co-exist along with that.
