Check out this step-by-step guide to sharing your location on WhatsApp

WhatsApp is one of the most popular apps across the globe. It is a great platform to communicate with your friends and family. Many might not know that you can share your location with your contacts using WhatsApp. This allows them to see exactly where you are, even if you are moving, and navigate your location. This is an especially handy feature if your loved ones are travelling late at night and you need to ensure they are on the right track. One thing to note is that you and the person sharing their location need to be connected to the internet as the location tracking uses GPS, but sharing it requires data. If you are in a different town or city, remember to switch on data roaming. 

You can also share your live location using WhatsApp. You can share the live location for 15 Min, 1 hour or 8 Hours. This is handy when you are travelling and need your loved ones to know exactly where you are.
