WhatsApp to Introduce 'Live Location Tracking' in Real Time

After unleashing untimely deadly blow on allblackberry users weeks ago, the Instant messaging appWhatsApp is working on a feature you’ll love, that will track the live location of members, allowing users to track the whereabouts of their friends in real time.


If you can still remember, In December last year, WhatsApp added the features torevoke and edit the sent messages in a beta version testing. The feature is currently available in WhatsApp beta for the iOS 2.17.1.869 but not available on the normal platform.


The "Live Location Tracking" is a new feature already introduced to some beta tester but will soon be roll out to both Android and iOS platform

According to info, the features will work on WhatsApp beta version 2.17.3.28 for iOS,2.16.399+ on Android and will be disabled by default.
  
The  Live Location Tracking can be kept on for 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, or indefinitely. Now imagine that you have a lying partner, or a random player, with this feature, you can easily trace their location in real time.

Or this could come in handy if you're supposed to meet with your family at a certain location and time, and you want to see how far away from the destination they are.

And if you don’t want anyone to track your movement,  The live streaming can also be disabled so that no one can learn where you are at any given moment.
