Share your location

Voxer Walkie-Talkie shares your GPS location on a map by default, and you can use pinch gestures to narrow it down to street level. I zoomed out here for the screenshot.

You can turn off location features

While fun for most conversations, you may want to turn the location features off. Go to settings, then select your account, and you'll find a switch where you can turn your location off.
