WhatsApp launched a new feature that allows users to share their location, calling it Live Location, and here’s how you use it:
Open up a chat with the person who you want to share your location with. Choose the time period you want to share your location for and tap send. Each person in the chat will be able to see your real-time location on a map. In a group, if more than one person shares their location all of them will be visible on the same map.
The difference between just sharing Location and Live Location is that the latter allows the person you’re sharing it with to see all your movements as they change, for a certain period of time.
Live Location is a simple and secure way to let people know where you are. This end-to-end encrypted feature lets you control who you share with and for how long. You can choose to stop sharing at any time or let the Live Location timer simply expire. – WhatsApp
Live Location is available on both Android and iOS and is continuously being rolled out globally.
