WhatsApp Update: How to share your live location to your friends on WhatsApp?

Recently WhatsApp introduced a new feature called live location sharing. Means you can easily share you live location to your friend or someone in your contacts list easily with just a single tap. This feature was already on Google Maps from some time earlier but WhatsApp had now finally released it for all public and we are loving to use this feature to track any of our friend’s exact location via WhatsApp alone.

This feature is best for the people or group who loves to travel and gets distracted from the group. It can also help you to meet any friend easily who tries to share with you fake location just not to meet you all.
As soon as this feature rolled out to public more and more people are seems to be using this feature and if you also want to be one of them but don’t know how to use it then here we are to help you with it.

There are certain steps to do this

  • Step 1: Firstly you need to download the latest version of WhatsApp as this feature is rolled out for the latest version only.
  • Step 2: Simply tap on the attachment icon from the friend’s chat to whom you want to share the live location with and click on Location.
  • Step 3: Once you click on location you will find many options as to send only the current location or to send the live location. Then select live location option.
  • Step 4: Now once you tap on that you can easily share the location by default for 15 minutes, 1 hour or 8 hours as per your choice or need and then simply hit the send button.
So following this steps you can easily share your location to any of your friends or person. Now suppose you shared the location for 8 hours but you are in no need to use it for more than 1 hours then you can easily hit the Stop button in order to stop sharing the location if no longer required.
This new feature has got many things positive and negative that for one instance it seems to be beneficial for everyone out there but on other side it’s scary as it can concern you location and anyone out there on internet can easily track you down.
