Recently, WhatsApp has added "Live Location" feature, and here we are going to see it in detail.
WhatsApp Live Location
What’s this Live Location Feature will do?
This feature allows you to share your location in real-time for a specific amount of time with the contact you choose.
Your location will be shared until you manually stop it or the amount of time you specified expires. Note that you can stop sharing at any time you want.
This is an “end-to-end" encrypted feature, and it will let your loved ones and friends to know where you are and lets them track your location. You can use this feature when you are up for a meeting with your friends or while you are traveling to the unfamiliar place.
So, How to Use this feature?
You can use this feature in the individual chat or a group chat. In this instance, I am using this feature in the individual chat.
Before using this feature, make sure you have turned on “Location” on your device. Otherwise, you will be prompted by the WhatsApp to do so.

You can tap "Stop sharing" and then "Stop" in the confirmation popup to stop Live Location sharing.
