[App] WhatsApp Latest Update Feature: Live Location (Which Chat-App is the best & Why?)

Hello Mi Fans!

Recently I downloaded a Whatsapp Update and realised there is a new 'Live Location' feature. This feature will allow you to share your real-time location for a duration amount of time, set by the user. You can control who is able to see your location; individuals or groups are able to see your location!

This feature was incorporated from Facebook's feature to let people know that their friends and family members are safe and secure, should any event happen.
Whether you're meeting up with friends, letting loved ones know you're safe, or sharing your commute, Live Location is a simple and secure way to let people know where you are. This end-to-end encrypted feature lets you control who you share with and for how long. You can choose to stop sharing at any time or let the Live Location timer simply expire
The true fact is that other apps have actually had this feature. Telegram and WeChat have such a feature. This reminds me of why does Whatsapp still have the 'story' feature, which I assume is an attempt to imitate the story-craze on Instagram.

Note: Do make sure you have the latest update of Whatsapp downloaded

Poll
At least within my peers, there seems to be a segregation in terms of the chat-applications we use; some prefer Whatsapp, others prefer Telegram, and at least for me, my current favourite app is WeChat (Duh I'm in China). The fantastic reason why is because WeChat is linked to so many other features, such as cashless payment and booking anything under the sun - purchasing movie tickets, food, clothes etc.

Could you guys share which is your favourite chats-apps and why? Or Why not!

Whatsapp. I agree @Kerk Lik. All chat apps mostly are align in terms of their features and all have their flaws. It's our human brain to decide on what chat app our 2 thumbs like to chit and chat. haha.

I like this location sharing of whatsapp though I haven't tried the others. I used it when I'm outside going somewhere. I will let my trusted folks to know where I am in case something unexpected will happen.

I use Facebook Messenger since most of my friends are on there. Telegram is used for those sweet Telegram channels and Whatsapp for family chatting!
