From a few sources (see below for examples), I learned about the possibility of locating the computers connected via Whatsapp Web and/or desktop apps, by simply tapping the relevant item in the list of connected computers (available from ... > Whatsapp Web); supposedly, doing so should automatically show you the computer's location on Google Maps. However, that does not seem to work on my phone; whenever I try, I am just asked whether I want to disconnect from that computer. Moreover, all those pages I found seem to be more than one year old.
Do you know whether such a feature exists, and
- if so, how to use it (i.e., why doesn't it work on my phone)?
- if not, did it exist once and why was it discontinued?
Here are some sources (admittedly not very authoritative ones, and I could not find much better, but I cannot see the point in inventing and spreading such a lie):
