The whole concept behind the location tracker is similar to the way in which the Find My Friends app for iPhones works. This app was released in 2011 and it is automatically placed on iPhones ever since the release of the iOS 9 version in 2015. However, before sharing the location of a person, the app asks for your permission.We got the change to find out about these development from a Twitter account that keeps track of WhatsApp novelties, namely @WABetaInfo.

You should know that this is a very interesting feature, as it allows you to share your location with your friends under the Show my friends option in the group s settings.

You can enable this feature for one minute, two minutes or five minutes, but if you trust the people from that particular group, you can always let it enabled permanently.This feature will surely make things easier for all members of the groups where they have to settle where to meet their friends at a particular location and some of them don t know the directions to get there. Once you tap Show my friends , you will see a map which will allow you to see the location of all your friends that have this feature enabled.

WhatsApp controversy has been present within social media communities ever since its acquisition by Facebook, when users did not get the memo that their private information will be shared with Facebook and that their personal data will end up on the social media giant s table.Recently, there have been news about a security vulnerability that would allow third parties to intercept and decrypt messages sent through WhatsApp. This has been brought to WhatsApp Facebook s attention, but the response that came from the latter was at the very least confusing. To paraphrase the answer, it would seem that they know about the vulnerability but do not intend to do anything about it.

He presented a beta 4 version of the jailbreak tool. However, there are also issues that came with it, in terms of not being stable and the warning of Luca that it came with Substrate and that it was really designed for developers.

Since Apple has stopped signing iOS 10.1.1, upgrading and downgrading to the version is not possible anymore, especially for those who upgraded to the latest iOS version and bypassing the previous one.

They ve issued a global update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to its Redmi Note 3 devices. It has been planned since the phone was released as slow but steady developments were made to make sure that upon its release it will not encounter any issues whatsoever.A beta version was made available for those who wanted to try it out and at the same time report bugs which messed with the OS.

Owners of Android powered devices can backup and restore their WhatsApp conversations on other Android devices simply by using Google Drive. The cloud service is free for all Android powered devices, and the only thing users are required to do is to log in into Google Drive and access the Settings menu from where they can choose to backup WhatsApp chat history . The only thing left to do now is to access the new Android device and open up WhatsApp. The app will prompt users to restore their chat history and take care of the rest on its own.Now on the other hand, iOS users will also have to use cloud service to store their chat history. This time, WhatsApp users will have to use Apple s own iCloud backup. In order to save conversations, iOS users need to open up WhatsApp and access the Settings menu from where they choose to backup the app s chat. The next step is similar with the same one Android users had to take, whenever users choose to open up the app they will be prompted to restore their chat conversations. Worth noting is that there is another way of storing WhatsApp history that doesn t include cloud services. This can be done by using an SD card, but using iOS or Android cloud services is the easiest method.
