WhatsApp Launches ‘Share Your Live Location’ Feature On Both Android And iOS
This end-to-end encrypted feature lets you control who you share with and for how long.
Whether you're meeting up with friends or just taking a stroll across the street, letting loved ones know you are safe is essential. What better can it be than simply sharing your location in real-time? Well, WhatsApp, with its newly rolled out feature, allows you to do this in real-time with family and friends. It 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, the company claims, according to a recent press release.
So, here’s how it works:
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
This new feature is available on both Android and iPhone and will be rolling out gradually in the coming weeks.
