With over 1.2 billion active monthly users, WhatsApp has become one of the biggest messaging app over the years. The app allows you to share images, files, media and documents. You can send messages, make voice and video call through the app. Now, like Snapchat, Instagram and Messenger you can share Statuses (daily stories). Another great feature of this app is the ability to share WhatsApp Location.
Now this great feature of sharing your current location is so much beneficial. For instances, you guys planning to go to a particular café, and your friend knows the place. Instead of just telling you the street name, he can just share the location of the café. More than ever, the main reason I use this feature to share WhatsApp location is when someone is unable to find my office or house address. Once the location is shared with the desired user, they can simply access it and open it in Google or Apple Maps.
