    In this video, we want to demonstrate how to send your location in a message. This is a very useful function because if you are trying to meet someone, and they don't know where you are, it could be hard to explain to it to them. Sending the a map with the exact location in it will make it a lot easier for people to locate you.

    We can choose another location by typing an address into the "Search" bar at the top of the screen

    If we don't want to send our actual location, but we want to send a different location to our contact, we can do that. For example if we were going to meet at a friend's house, we can type in that friend's home address and send it to another friend. Then they would know where to go.

    .
    It is the blue speech box with three horizontal lines next to it indicating movement. It says "Slot 1" next to it because we are using that slot for our SIM card.
