Last Updated: May 3, 2022
Do you want to share your exact location with one of your friends on Signal? Or do you want to send the address for a meetup in the future? In any case, you can share a map location on the app. Check our guide below, and we’ll show you how.
If you’re planning to meet up with your friends at your new place, giving them directions is one of the things you should do. You can give out precise instructions through the chat or when you’re calling them.
However, we understand that not everyone is good at giving out directions. Also, it might be easier for you if you can use a map to pinpoint the exact location you choose.
Thankfully, Signal allows its users to attach a location with Google Maps. As such, you can tell people exactly where you are with a few taps.
Here’s our guide about sharing your location on the Signal mobile app.
