Whatsapp Introduces Live Location feature
WhatsApp Live Location is a new feature which allows users to share their location with friends and groups while chatting with them. This feature will be available for Android and iPhone users as well.
Good thing is location sharing isn’t a new thing as big social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook have that feature. So it’s nice whatsapp is adding it to their platform too.

HOW TO USE THE WHATSAPP LIVE LOCATION ON WHATSAPP GROUPS
Here’s where it gets interesting. You FSN also use the WhatsApp Location Sharing feature in whatsapp groups as well.
Fortunately, WhatsApp Live Location has end-to-end encrypted feature which lets you control who you share with and for how long. You can choose to stop sharing at any time or let the Live Location timer simply expire.
However, if you don’t want your location to be tracked by WhatsApp, simply just turn off location services from your phone settings.
