    How to share a Google Maps location on WhatsApp?

    Want to know how to share location or google maps on WhatsApp? Looking out for a detailed step by step procedure to do so? Find responses from experts on this page regarding sharing location or taking a screenshot.

    Recently a relative was visiting and asked us to share our home's location via WhatsApp. We had no clue so just gave her directions. Is there some way to pinpoint our home on Google Maps and share the location exactly as it is shown there via WhatsApp? Is there some link feature for that or we need to simply take a screenshot and share that? A step by step precise guidance would be helpful. Moreover, I do not even know how to take a screenshot, so please explain that as well.

  • There is one simple way to send your location through WhatsApp.

    When you are chatting with your friend then you are writing in a small box. If you see in the right side of this, you will see a paperclip (U clip) which is meant for attachments.

    You click this paperclip icon and then options will pop out on the screen like document/ camera/ audio/ gallery/ location/ contact etc.

    It is the 'location' icon which you have to click and it will show your present location on the Google Map. There will be a 'send your current location' message on the screen and you simply click it.

    The location map will go to your friend with an indicator on it pertaining to your location.

    Knowledge is power.

  • You can do it in the following way.
    1. Open your WhatsApp App.

  • WhatsApp offers a simple way to share your location.

    At the right side of the chat box, within a conversation with a particular contact, there is a paper clip like icon representing attachment.

    Once you click on that paperclip icon it will open up with a dialogue box with options like document, payment, gallery, audio, LOCATION and contact.

    Click on the 'location' icon which will redirect you into google maps and locate your present location.

  • In WhatsApp, open into anyone's message whom you want to share and there is an attachment option for sharing various type of data such as you text/doc file, an audio file, video file, link, and even location. So click on the location option. After tapping or clicking into location option, then your google map opens and tells which location you are in. After these, your location is shared.
