how to share your location

You planned for meeting up with your friend and you got lost; sharing your location would be a savior instead of explaining the landmarks to your friend. Windows Phone allows you to do so with few taps.

  • Navigate to Messaging.
  • Create a new message to your contact or open an existing thread.
  • Tap on the attach icon.
  • Tap on “my location”; your current location will be added as a map.

You can send it via MMS / Text, Facebook, Messenger

If the recipient opens it in a Windows Phone, it will automatically open up in maps with the pin pointing to your location. If you open up in a desktop or on non-windows phone in desktop mode, it will open up the web maps with the location pinned.
