The company said on Monday that it will add the mobile tracking feature which had been limited to Google Latitude. The new component will display the user's location as the status on the Talk or Gmail service.
Google is also offering the Public Location Badge service, which automatically lists information about the user on a blog or web site. Users will have the option of limiting the status to a specific city, or providing more detailed information on their whereabouts.
The new services are based on Latitude, a service launched in February which allows users to track friends and family through their mobile phones. Aside from connecting with friends, many have suggested that the service could have uses in the enterprise as well.
The new location services will be part of the Google Mobile application suite. The company hopes that the new features will expand on the base of users who adopted Latitude.
"One frequent request was to allow you to share your location with even more people and not just your Latitude friends," wrote Google software engineer Rohan Seth. "Today, we're launching two applications that do just that."
