In this new WhatsApp update, You will be able to share your location in real time with friends. Now, you will not have to tell your location to anyone in your WhatsApp contacts. The location will automatically get updated and your contacts will automatically get your live location details. WhatsApp has followed the same thing as its rivals like Facebook Messenger and iMessage but in its unique way.
Users will be able to use this feature on both, Android and iPhone and can send the location as they used to send. As an update, now, the person can track your location continuously during the time period you wish. The time period has been divided into three slots, fifteen minutes, an hour and 8 hours and you can also manually turn off the location sharing if you don’t want to share it or reaches a destination.
Snapchat and Foursquare also have the location sharing feature but users will make the best use of it when it will be implemented in WhatsApp. There are some other apps too but this feature will definitely be helpful in WhatsApp for making sure that someone gets home alright because WhatsApp is very widely used and popular app. There will be an option in Account Privacy settings that will give you the details of your live location sharing and the contacts with whom you are sharing it. Over 1 billion daily active users, and 1.3 billion monthly active users are supposed to use this feature.
