WhatsApp Joins Several Messaging Platforms in Offering Live Location Sharing

You can also set a timer on how long you want your location shared before you send.

WhatsApp has now joined the likes of Google Maps and parent company Facebook in activating real-time location sharing for users.

Today, WhatsApp announced that you will be able to share your location in real time with your friends. Users can choose to stop sharing their locations whenever, or let the Live Location timer expire. But it does still launch new functions from time to time, and today we're talking about live location sharing.

WhatsApp says that this latest feature is coming to both Android and iOS and will be rolling out over the "coming weeks". You open a chat with the person you want to share your location with - the feature also supports groups, too - and from there, you open the "Location" option within the attach section and click the new "Share Live Location". Live location sharing is end-to-end encrypted and you can control who to share with and for how long.

Live-location sharing means that the other person can keep a track of your movement in real-time, which means if you are going towards any direction then the other person can even guide you the way to a certain place with just simple directions. And if more than one person shares their Live Location in the group, all locations will be visible on the same map.
