19 Oct WhatsApp announced on Wednesday that it's adding live location sharing, making it easier to find your friends in real life with the Facebook-owned messaging app. It's also great for sharing your commute so people know when you'll arrive and that you're safe. 18 Oct WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging service, is giving its over 1 billion users another reason to keep coming back to the app multiple times a day: live location sharing. WhatsApp, of course, already gives you the option to share your current location with other users, but that's a static, one-time share. 21 Oct WhatsApp has supported instant location sharing for quite some time and now the popular messaging app has also got the ability to share live location. After doing rounds in the beta version for a while the live location sharing feature has just made to the stable version of WhatsApp for both Android and iOS.
