Live Location is a way to let people know where you are. We have seen recently this feature is becoming a trend among the most known apps and social media networks. But how does it work?
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 is available on both Android and iPhone and will be rolling out in the app in the coming weeks.
WhatsApp team claims:
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.
Sharing your information is now becoming a security concern. We need to know who, when and how can access to our data anytime.
