How to Share Your Location on WhatsApp

How to Share your location on WhatsApp

WhatsApp never seem to stop adding new features to their communication beast of an app. That’s probably why it’s just a giant. The app has evolved tremendously over the last couple of years and they’re adding a new feature. It may already be live on your device or you might have to wait a little for them to roll it out to your area.

That feature is the ability of sharing your location, or more specifically ‘Live Sharing’. This is where you share you location for a specific amount of time and as you move around and travel, your friends can see exactly where you are and where you go.

So how do you access this wonderful feature?

First of all you’ll need to update your app to the latest version. If it’s been awhile since your last update then updating now will also give you the feature to delete messages from all recipients.  Once you’ve updated the app simply navigate to a conversation and tap on the attachment icon.

This will bring up several options, such as photos, audio etc. Included in this list will be ‘Location’. Tap on this and you’ll get the option to either send your current location or somewhere nearby, or to send your live location. If you share your live location then you’ll be shown a few options to choose from to select the duration of time you want your location to be shared for.

Once you’ve done this your location will be constantly updated and shared to the conversation you chose for the amount of time you decided on. You don’t need to keep the app open for this feature to work.

And there you have it. That is all there is to it. The most important thing to do for this whole process is to update your app first.
