Today, WhatsApp started rolling out a new feature called Live Location via its blog. This feature will let you ‘share your location in real-time with people who are close to you. It will be handy for instances like – a meet-up with your friends, letting all know about your safety, or simply sharing your commute.

WhatsApp Live Location is easy to use and has profound security, while people get to know where you are at the present time. It is an end-to-end encrypted feature that gives control to you regarding who you share the location. You can also control the time span of the share of your commute – either stop sharing at any time or let your set timer expire.

Now, how does WhatApp’s new feature work? First, open a chart with a user or group you want to share your location with. Then, under the ‘Location’ in the attach button, you’ll see a new option to ‘Share Live Location.’ Finally, select for how long you want to share it with your loved ones, and tap send.

The process will lead each person within the chat to ‘see your real-time location on a map.’ In case more than one person shares their location, all of the locations can be seen on the same map.

The new Live Location feature is available for both iPhones and Android. The coming weeks will further see WhatsApp rolling out the feature in its app.
