Snapchat will now let users share real-time location with friends
To enable the setting, users navigate to a friend’s profile and select the duration of location sharing. The status of live location sharing is visible within the chat window with that friend.
This update is the first live location feature for Snapchat. Users already have the option to let friends see where they were when they last used the app, which populates the Snap Map — used by 250 million Snapchat users a month.
In addition to the buddy system feature, beginning today Snapchat will include an in-app message about bystander awareness.
