When Apple launched their own maps app they added the ability for users to share their location in messages the process is easy and since then more and more apps have added this feature including live tracking.
The stock Messages app also allows live tracking and works both in iMessage and text message and even in group messages and is easy to use. Simply follow our guide below:
1 ) Open Messages app and tap on the conversation you want to share your location with. This can be a conversation thread with a single contacts or group contacts.
2 ) On the next page tap on the ‘i’ button located on the top right side of your screen. This will open the Details page.
3 ) On the details page you will see a section titled ‘Location’. There you will find two separate options. * “Send current location” which sends your current location only * “Share my location” which allows live tracking
4 ) If you want to share your current location without being live tracked then choose “send my current location”
5 ) If you choose to share your location with live tracking choose “Share my location” which allows live tracking you will then have the option to choose if you want to share your location for •One hour •One day •Indefinitely
As you can see the process is easy and doesn’t require any third party apps, we hope you find this useful.
