The district south of downtown and alongside San Francisco Bay known as either Rincon Hill, South Beach or South of Market this spring, was suddenly rebranded on Google Maps to a name few had heard: the East Cut.

Google has a famous Maps platform to find locations and they often update it with the fresh set of features.

In brief: Friends and family can now view your smartphone's remaining battery life if you decide to share your location via Google Maps. Not anymore. If there's a shortest distance to go from A to B, Google will now show an option if you're on a two-wheeler. Yes, we are talking about the fact that you can now see the other person's phone battery life as well as track their whereabouts.

The new battery feature is probably meant as a tool to help users identify if friends are safe and well, as well as a way of knowing how much life might be left in a lost phone, although Google has not commented directly on the feature.

Once you share your location it will appear on the receiver's Google Maps. "I just noticed today it shows me her battery percentage is at 80 percent", the post read. Location sharing is a very helpful pre-embedded feature.

Android Police says it has tested the feature out and can confirm that the battery level is dead-accurate, displaying the exact battery percentage on the sender's phone.

Once in there you can choose who to share your location with, how long for or request location access from someone you know.

Data about the battery level can be useful in emergency situations.

The other India-specific feature being tested now for the Google Maps is the real-time bus transit information tool.

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