Soon, WhatsApp users will be able to share your location in real time with friends from your contact list. The Live Location was borrowed from a current owner of a service company Facebook.
The innovation will be available in the next time users both on iOS and on Android. The company has already tested a similar feature in Messenger back in may of this year in the framework of its multi-year experiment to expand functionality.
To use the Live Location, you need to first start a chat with a person or a group. In the opened chat window, press the ” + ” and “Location” will appear a new option “Share Live Location”. You must choose how long to display the location, and then click “Send”. This function also works if multiple users share it in a group chat. In this case, moving all participants will be displayed on the same map in real time.
WhatsApp promises that, like all other features, Live Location will be protected through encryption. Additional guarantee of safety will also become a timer. Users can at any time to disable access to display your location or wait until it will make the timer.
