WhatsApp is Planning to Get “Live Location Tracking”: Rumors
Let me clear the fact that WhatsApp hasn’t have announced anything about this feature and the news is coming from the leaker of early beta features of WhatsApp, WBAInfo.
The twitter handle writes that WhatsApp is planning to get a “Live Location Tracking” feature, which would be enabled for 1, 2 or 5 minutes at once.
Now, what it means is, your friend could easily track you down where you exactly are. Of course, you will have to enable this feature first.
In an another post, it has been said that the feature will be “disabled” by default and if anyone will need to share his/her location, then he/she can by enabling it from settings panel.
