After tapping the map icon, your current location will be displayed on the map. To share your location, simply tap on the blue “Send My Location” button. Snapchat will then send a snap to your friend or group with a map showing your location.

Tips and Tricks

  • Customize Location Stickers: While sharing your location, you can add stickers, emojis, or even a personalized caption to make it more fun and engaging.
  • Choosing Specific Locations: If you don’t want to share your exact location, you can choose a nearby landmark or a general area instead.
