“In new whatsapp people are able to track where you are for a period of time stipulated by you”
Just in a couple of weeks to come, whatsapp will be bringing in another update on its messaging app. This time round is the sharing of location.
It’s not as familiar as you would think. In the new update whatsapp will allow you share live location in real time unlike the old location feature that was static – if you were on the move friends would hardly locate you.
