WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow users to share their location with other people in real-time. However, the company has not given any information about the timeline for making this improvement available to beta testers. As is the case with all developing features, the company may introduce it in a beta update before releasing it to the stable channel. Alternatively, there is the possibility that the feature may not be implemented at all and may be abandoned.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has agreed to deregister from its messaging service those mobile numbers which have been found to be working for fraud and whose mobile services have already been disconnected, Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnav said on Tuesday. She had gone for a walk.
“We are working closely with WhatsApp to ensure that the safety of our customers is paramount. They have agreed to deregister any users found to be engaging in fraudulent behavior. This is an important step in protecting our customers from scams.”
