WhatsApp allows you to share your location with one or more contacts. The location is a fixed point on a map. Basically, people can find you right away, if you do not move. But, if your real-time location is shared on WhatsApp, the person you are conversing with can see exactly where you are for a few minutes or hours, depending on GPS accuracy. This is especially useful when you go to adventures and don’t want to get separated from your group. You can also track family members to see if they got to their location safely. You can also monitor your kids to see if they went to school or college.

To use this feature, go to WhatsApp and tap on a conversation someone in the contact list. You can also start a new conversation to create a group. In the dialog box that appears, click the plus on the right bottom bracket on Android or on the bottom left of your iPhone. Choose a location from the available options. Click Distribute Location in Real Time from the new window. Next choose whether you want the sharing to last 15 minutes, an hour or 8 hours and click send. From that message, the people or person at the end of a conversation will be able to view your exact location during the sharing period. You can pause real-time sharing of the location, by tapping on the same message.
