One of the most common questions I get asked when I am chatting with my friends and family is, “Where are you?”
If you are using BlackBerry® Messenger, we have a neat way to send your location to your friends. Choose “Send Location” while you are in the conversation screen.*
Your friend will receive a visual description, with a map and a pointer to where you are, in the conversation window of your friend.
If your friend does not have the latest version of BlackBerry Messenger or BlackBerry Maps installed, they will receive the location information as a URL. If they plug the URL in any desktop internet browser, it will display a map and your location in the browser.
*Note that you and your contact need a device with 4.6 and above with BlackBerry Maps installed to take advantage of this feature.
