We continue learning new details about the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow and after the possibility of knowing that we will be able to see the battery percentage on our phone from natively today we know that the location will be displayed when making an emergency call.
Yes, as you hear. If you acquire a mobile terminal with Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the future, you should know that the system will show your current location when you make an emergency call to the emergency telephone numbers.
Location when calling 911
At the moment it looks like it will work with the 911 phone, so anyone making a call to the 911 phonewill also send its location so that the services locate you as soon as possible.
It is clear that this functionality is not a toy and as a consequence it cannot be tested to see if it works or not since making a “false call” to the emergency services is not entirely correct.
Apart from that problem, what is clear is that in my opinion it seems to be a very useful and easy-to-use tool,since the location will be sent without us doing anything and it would only be necessary to call the emergency number.
The coordinates of our location would be sent immediately and thus the people who come to our rescue will save time asking us where we are, minutes that can be very vital in real cases of emergency.
This new tool that will include Android 6.0 Marshmallow is still being tested and for now is only compatible with the 911 number, although It is expected that there will be a longer list of numbers such as 091 or 112 and other numbers from other countries.
What do you think of this new functionality?
