Open a chat with the person or group you want to share with. Go to Location, from the attach button. The attach options will have Share Live Location.

When you select it, you can even choose for how long you intend to share location with the other person. Then hit send. If more than one person shares their Live Location in the group, all locations will be visible on the same map.
Note that this is an end to those times you lie to your friends that youre in a particular location when youre somewhere else. It wont end well when they request you share your location.
