Facebook owned WhatsApp Messenger has announced yet another feature in their kitty. the company recent launched “Live Location Sharing” feature which allows user to share real-time location with friends and family.
Whether you’re meeting up with friends, letting loved ones know you’re safe, or sharing your commute, 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.
Here’s how you can use Live Location Sharing feature :
— 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. And if more than one person shares their Live Location in the group, all locations will be visible on the same map.
Live Location Sharing feature will be available for both WhatsApp for Android and iOS in the coming days. it is currently available for Beta Testers on WhatsApp for Android.If you like our report please share your support by subscribing to our community on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram or Flipboard. you can also join our support group Smartphone Assistant for any queries related to your devices
