Earlier this year we saw the introduction of a new way to get home with HERE WeGo for iOS. Now, HERE WeGo is also available for sharing locations in iMessage for iOS.

To start sharing places with your friends, you'll need to make sure you have the latest version of iOS, and you'll need to add HERE WeGo as an iMessage app.

To do this, open messages and tap the A icon at the bottom of the screen. Press the menu button (the four round dots) at the bottom left, and then tap the +Store button.

Pick Manage from the three tabs at the top of the display, and tap the toggle button to add HERE WeGo. Press Done, and you're good to go.

The next time you use iMessage, it's easy to share locations that you've searched for using HERE WeGo. Simply open your messages, tap the A and then menu buttons again, and this time you'll see HERE WeGo is included on the list of items.

Pick HERE WeGo, and all your recent searches show up. Tapping one of them automatically adds a HERE map to your message thread, and once your friend receives it they can simply tap the map to get directions from HERE WeGo.

Have you used HERE WeGo with iMessage yet? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.
