I have an Android phone and my friends and family have iPhones.

If we were all on iPhones I could use the Find my friends app to find out where they are.

Is there an app I can use that will give me the same functionality from my Android phone?

  • Is it OK to require all of your friends to install a particular app? Or should it work without requiring them to do anything special (besides giving permissions)?

  • @NicolasRaoul. It’s fine if it requires them to install a particular app.
