WhatsApp rolls out live location sharing for Android and iOS





Of all of Facebook's various properties, WhatsApp definitely isn't the fastest when it comes to adding new features or catching up with competitors in that regard. But it does still launch new functions from time to time, and today we're talking about live location sharing.
This has been seen before in apps such as Google Maps and even Facebook Messenger  - the launch in both of those cases happened back in March. Seven months later, the feature is finally ready to be added to WhatsApp.

It will be rolling out "in the coming weeks" in the chat service's Android and iOS apps. Live location sharing is end-to-end encrypted and you can control who to share with and for how long. You're also able to stop sharing at any time.




If you're sharing to a group chat, every person in that group will be able to see your real-time location on a map. And if more than one person shares their live location, all of their whereabouts will be visible on the same map for added convenience.
