This plugin adds location sharing capabilities to the open source Jabber/XMPP
Why a plugin?
One of the design principles of Conversations is to require as few permissions
as possible. Not every user might be comfortable with Conversations accessing
the device location at any given time.
On top of that this plugin makes heavy use of Google Play Services and the
Google Maps API to improve the user experience. (Better location detection using
cell towers and display of an actual map to verify the users position.)
Both of which are not really suitable for mainline Conversations.
How to use
This plugin requires Conversations >= 1.2.0. If installed Conversations will
show a Send location in the attach menu. (Next to Choose picture Take picture and Choose file)
