How to Use New WhatsApp Live Location Features
No more hiding, WhatsApp knows your location and there is a new feature called WhatsApp Live Location which allows you share your location with your friends and groups while chatting with them.
It's good to know that location Sharing is not a new feature in mobile apps because apps like Google Maps, Facebook Messenger, and Snapchat all uses it. It is a great way to let people know where you are, for instance, if you have travelled to a country or city that you are not familiar with. So how do you use this new feature? Well, before that, take this important message.
HOW TO GET WHATSAPP LIVE LOCATION FEATURES
Note that this feature has just being announced and could take few days before reaching everywhere. All you need to do now is to keep tabs on the latest Whatsapp update via playstore for Android users and iTunes for iOS users. Once there is a new update, just click on "update" to get it.
HOW TO USE WHATSAPP LIVE LOCATION
Once the WhatsApp live location (location sharing) is available on the app, follow below steps to use it;
✔ Open a chat with the person 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
Hurray! By doing this, you have just sent your real-time location on a map to the recipient. Think of it working the same way your Uber driver is able to locate you (and vice-versa).
