Facebook Messenger update brings the ability to send locations as messages
Facebook has started rolling out a new feature that allows you to send locations as messages using the company’s Messenger app. “Now you can choose to explicitly send a map of your location or another particular place as a separate message,” the company said.
To use the feature, just tap the More icon or the location pin present the bottom of the app’s window, and you can share your (or any) location with the one you’re chatting with.
The social networking company makes it clear that the location sharing feature is completely optional, and assures that nothing is changing about how it receives your location information.
