Facebook Live has added the Live Location option, which allows users to share their location in real time.
To show your location to your friends, you need to click the “Location” button or go to the menu and select the “Location” item.
The functionality allows the user to share among friends access to the map, which indicates his location at the moment. The access session lasts 60 minutes. You can turn it off at any time by pressing the “Stop Sharing” button.
People who access the map (and the user himself) will be able to see the expected arrival time of the friend in the specified location.
A small clock will be displayed in the lower right corner of the map, which will show how much more time information will be broadcast about its location.
This option will be available to users around the world in Facebook Messenger apps for iOS and Android.
Recall that the Facebook Messenger added options for reactions and mentions.
