Live location sharing is a feature that has been quite popular this year and has been adopted by many popular platforms, starting from Google maps to Facebook’s messenger, Snapchat, and even telegram has baked this feature into its messenger now. So how could the most popular messaging service WhatsApp could stay behind in this race?

Moreover, in its latest blog postings, Whatsapp has announced that the feature will be coming soon to Android as well as iOS devices, in coming weeks. This share live location feature can be discovered in the attachments menu, and you can then post your location live in a group and or to an individual contact from your phones list.

Apparently, people who also shared their location in the group can be seen on the same map itself, together. So, now this is your neat little evidence when you’re genuinely�late to an event, nobody believes you, this feature will surely save you. Shipping services might also jump into this when your order is about to ship, and you might be able to track your delivery guy’s location live.
