Reach me, a Microsoft Garage project, lets you share your location with friends, and they get turn-by-turn directions to reach you.
Reach me guides them to your home, work, or any other favorite place. If you share your live location, your friends can see where you are in real time, with easy-to-follow directions that update as you move from place to place. Location tracking expires at the time you set, so you control how long they can follow you.
To share location with your friend, you should have the Microsoft Account (MSA) of your friend added to his/her contact information on your phone.
