WhatsApp Offers Live Tracking in Its Latest Update—Disastrous or Useful?

The recent update of WhatsApp will now allow users to track the live location of your friends. Not only this you will also get updated via push notifications as soon as your friends change their statuses. Surprisingly its true!

The new WhatsApp update will now come with a new ‘Show My Friends’ option that makes your live location accessible to a specific set of audience for a particular time, depending on what your preference is. However, you can customize the tracking time and select the duration options like 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, or indefinitely. This comes in handy if you’re supposed to meet the gang at a certain location and time, and you want to see how far away from the destination everyone in the group is. Useful isn’t?

Don’t be alarmed, there’s good news too! The live streaming can be easily disabled so that your group members can’t snoop down your live location.

Not only this, the new beta update comes with a feature which notifies users when one of their friends changes their status message. Some of the other changes also includes the push notifications feature and the ability to delete the status in 24 hours.

Share your Feedback

WhatsApp will also offer a “Feedback” option which will directly allow you to contact the developers team to share your feedback and reviews over updates.

The developers keep surprising us now and then with different updates and changes. Not even a fortnight passed when WhatsApp brought us the offline message queuing option and here we are all bummed up again.

WhatsApp is one immensely popular messaging app popular amongst millions of users. It recently launched a video calling feature which is available on all platforms — Android, iOS and Windows used by many happy users worldwide.

Hold your breath till the next one, to see what’s in store!
