No More Lies, WhatsApp Knows Where You Are.

WhatsApp users can now share their movements in real-time in the world's most popular chat app. Quoted from the express page, this newest feature of WhatsApp is called Live Location, and lets users track their chat partners’ movement for 30 minutes, an hour or eight hours at a time.

Previously, WhatsApp has allowed users to share their location as stationary places on a map. Now, when a user selects Live Location, the user’s friends can see their location on the map, which is automatically updated as they move.

WhatsApp has stated that its new feature is "a simple and safe way to let people know where you are".
The end-to-end location is encrypted – similar to messages, photos, videos and files you send in WhatsApp – which should remove some users' fears about this feature.
In addition, you can also choose to terminate the sharing of location prematurely before the end of the specified time period.

WhatsApp intended the Live Location feature to be very useful for someone who is trying to meet a friend, or at least letting a loved one know that they are safe or just sharing a journey.

To get started, turn on the location settings or GPS. Then, open WhatsApp conversations with the people or groups you want to share with. Under Location on the install button, there's a new option for Live Location Sharing or Share Live Location.
WhatsApp will then ask you to choose how long you want to share your GPS data.

Once you have decided, just click the Send button.
Everyone in your selected chats can now see your real-time location on the map.
And if more than one person shares their Live Locations in a group chat, all locations will be visible on the same map.
The Live Location update is available on Android and iPhone and will be available in the coming weeks.
