Google Maps’ new Latitude feature lets you easily locate your friends

Google Maps for mobiles has just been improved with the addition of a new feature called Google Latitude.

Coming as an extension to the My Location service, Google Latitude allows users to share their current location, as well as to see their friends’ location (as long as they’re willing to share it, of course).

Available in 27 countries and no less than 42 languages, Google Latitude currently supports Android, Symbian S60, Blackberry and Windows Mobile handsets. Support for Apple’s iPhone will be added later this year.

What’s cool is that you can use Latitude even when you don’t have a mobile phone around: as long as you have a PC or a laptop, you can access the feature through iGoogle.
