How to Share Your Location With Your Friends in WhatsApp

Meeting your friends in an unfamiliar place is a pain. Once you move away from rigid networks, finding a location becomes a challenge. The best thing to do, rather than share an address, is to share your exact GPS location. Here's how to do it with WhatsApp.

Open a WhatsApp chat with the person with whom you want to share your location, tap the + icon and select Location.

The simplest option is simply to send where you are right now. Choose your current location or any of the nearby places suggestions.

If you plan to move or if, for security reasons, you want someone to always know where you are, select Share location live. You will receive a warning to make sure that you know that you are sharing your live location even if you quit the app, so press OK.

Then select how long you want to share your live location for. The options are 15 minutes, 1 hour or 8 hours. Add a comment if you want, then press the Send button.

At any time, you can press Stop Sharing to stop sending your location. Otherwise, until the time expires, they will be able to see your position even if you move to a totally different place.
