This WhatsApp feature can save your live

Written by

Did you know that Whatsapp supports instant location sharing?

It's old news, and you might have even seen it a thousand times when using your app but never paid close attention to it

This feature helps you to easily track a friend you're having difficulty to locate.

Most people have used it as a backup plan, in case they enter a strange vehicle or are traveling a long distance and are concerned about their safety.

Or maybe you want to find out if your mate is actually where they claim to be, just tell them to turn on their location to see for yourself. You didn't hear that from me though.

The location feature has two functions. There's the 'Send live location' and 'Send current location'.
The ' Send live location' function is usually used when you're engaging in long-distance travel. Or when you're in a situation where you're unsure about your own safety. Once you send live location, the recipient can immediately see your face and track you as you move.

Send current location is usually used when someone wants to meet you up and just can't understand your description. The app through its map takes you directly to where the person is, similar to how your Google map works.

Either one you use is perfect. The world is a dangerous place and being proactive, saves lives.

To use the location feature, open your WhatsApp app, and open a chat with the person you want to share your location with.

Click on the attach button close to the camera button on your chat box below

Click on "location" and then choose to send either your 'Live Location' where the person sees your face or your current location where the person can track you down to exactly where you are

So remember, whenever you find yourself in a dicey situation, use the location feature of your WhatsApp.
