The feature allows you to share your real-time location with your family or friends. If you're using WhatsApp on a daily basis, Live Location is very easy to use.
Naturally, the location sharing is end-to-end encrypted just like other content shared within chats. The developer confirmed the Live Location will be slowly rolled out worldwide in the coming weeks, so it might take some time be available to everyone.
WhatsApp will now let you track your friend's location.
When someone shares their location, it appears in chat as a map with their avatar in the center and a notice on the bottom that says "Live Until 2:00", or whatever time the share is set to expire.
When multiple people in a chat share their location, you'll be able to everyone's location on the same map. Location sharing has been available through the app for awhile, but this is the first time that real-time location sharing services will be available through the app. Users can also turn off location sharing whenever they choose.
In a blog post on Tuesday, the makers of the app wrote: "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".
WhatsApp's rival messaging platform Telegram also allows you to share your location with others on the app. This is definitely a neat feature as it not only shows your friends' location on a single map, but it is end-to-end encrypted as well.
