Now you can easily share your location with your loved ones live on WhatsApp. This feature will be really helpful for a parent who loves to always keep in touch with their children to know if they are saved.
This feature has an end-to-end encryption so you don’t have to worry about security. The feature lets you control who you share your location with and for how long.
You can easily turn off the feature at any time.
How to use it.
To use this feature is not difficult just follow this steps below.
