    Hi everyone,
    I use the live location sharing feature of WhatsApp a lot but since a while back the feature isn't working anymore. My location will stay add the same place until I open WhatsApp. I already found the problem but I don't know how to fix it or how can fix it.
    As you can see on the picture in the attachment I can only select "Allow only while using the app" in the location permissions. This has to be "Always Allow" to work like other applications that use the location on the background.
    I would love to know if there is a solution for this!

    Yeah i have contacted them but no helpful reply yet. I'm still in contact with them hoping for something useful. Will this be something that only they can fix?

    That is true but the permission settings did felt like a part of the phone not the app to me. But when I'm reading your answer I get the feeling that is also a application related.
