To start sharing your location:

Open Google Maps on your phone, and tap your Google account avatar (top right).

Select Location sharing.

Tap New share to start sharing your location with someone new.

Your first decision is how long to share your location: use the + (plus) or - (minus)  

Buttons to set a time period between 15 minutes and nine hours.

Select Until you turn this off if you’d rather this contact were able to see your location until you decide otherwise.

Pick a contact from the list of suggestions, or tap More to choose a different contact.

The same Location sharing screen where you add new contacts also lists the people you’re currently sharing 

location data with — you’ll see the whereabouts of all these people plotted on the map.
