Google has announced a new check-in feature for Latitude that is available starting today for Android and coming soon to itsapp.
Not your typical check-ins
Because you can use Latitude to automatically detect your location, we’ve added a few twists to checking in to make it really easy:
● Notifications: Turn on check-in notifications in Latitude’s settings and get a notification to check in at a nearby place once you arrive. Never forget to check in again.
● Automatic check-ins: Choose to automatically check in at specific places you designate, and you’ll be checked in when you’re there. You can talk to friends or finish your bagel without fumbling with your phone.
● Check out: Once you leave, Latitude knows to automatically check you out of places so friends aren’t left guessing if you’re still there.
If you have the Latitude app for, you’ll see your friends’ check-ins. Google says the app will be updated soon to allow you to check-in as well.
