You can now share your location in BBM on Android and iOS
With the latest update of BBM, you can now share your location in BBM 2.0 to your friends. This enables you to quickly show a friend or loved one where you are for a short
while. The default timer is 5 minutes, but you can modify this timer to as much as 4 hours in the
settings.

Also before you can share your location in BBM 2.0, you’ll also need to allow Glympse to access
your current location. You can do this in the settings panel of BBM.
Here’s how to share your location in BBM 2.0 for Android and iOS

How to Share your location in BBM
1. From within a BBM chat select the
paperclip icon on the left side of the chat box.
2. Press the Glympse tab that looks like a capital G.
3. Use the grey tab to glide around the ‘G’ in increments of 5 minutes – this is how long the recipient will be able to view your location.
4. Press the ‘Send’ tab and you’re done.
Your BBM contact will instantly receive a notification prompting them to view your Glympse.
They’ll be able to view your location on their phone until the timer expires.
