The Facebook Messenger app has been getting quite frequent updates lately. The most recent one shows more details of people who sends you messages, let you send a map of where you are, and the ability to suggest a meeting spot.
Today, we’re excited to start rolling it out in place of our previous location sharing feature. Now you can choose to explicitly send a map of your location or another particular place as a separate message.
To get started, just tap the More icon or the location pin at the bottom of your screen. If you want to tell a friend which restaurant to meet you at, search for the restaurant and send a map of where it is. If you’re running late, send a map of where you are to your friend to let him or her know how far away you are.
What’s New In This Version:
● See more about who’s contacting you: When someone messages you for the first time, you’ll see info you have in common like mutual friends, groups you’re both in and events you’ve attended together.
● Send a map of where you are, any place or pinned location: Now you can suggest a meeting spot, instantly update friends on where you are and so much more with just a few taps.
