Whatsapp has rolled out a new feature that helps you to track the Live Location of your friend and relative. Whatsapp already has a feature through which the people can share a specific geo-location with their friends. But now the user can broadcast their current location along an option that allows anyone in your contact list to track the current location.
Live Location Tracking is disabled by default but one can enable to through the app’s settings menu.

As of now, Live Location Tracking is baked into the beta version of Whatsapp on both Android (version 2.16.399) and iOS (version 184.108.40.206) platforms.
Right now there is no official information provided by Whatsapp when they exactly give the green signal to the live tracking feature for the end-user build.
