Social media platform WhatsApp has now introduced a new feature wherein a person’s location is shared in real time with family and friends.
Now the Live Location is a simple and secure way to let people know where you are. However in view of privacy concerns the 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. Live Location is available on both Android and iPhone and will be rolling out in the app in the coming weeks.
Open a chat with the person or group you want to share with.- Under “Location” in the attach button, there’s a new option to “Share Live Location.
Choose for how long you want to share and tap send.- Each person in the chat will be able to see your real-time location on a map.- If more than one person shares their Live Location in the group, all locations will be visible on the same map.>
