The idea is ok but I'm not keen on the app to be honest. Now uninstalled.

Sounds outlandish, but obviously very useful in certain circumstances.
Google Maps has a similar thing built into it, but instead of words it uses a combination of letters and numbers with a town.
However with the size of the squares I can see why this allows emergency services (among others) to be more precise about where they are needed.
Wouldn't be surprised if this gets swallowed up by a navigation company at some point...

What 3 words describe the back door and front door of the house, I wonder?
Never used this app before, but it really should be possible to find out this info for static structures just using a Web browser and perhaps Google Maps... Back later.
Hours of post-pub fun, the website let's you search for 3-word sets to find where the location is...

A very interesting thing...
It's not common here. But some of our "call centers" (fire & EMS is in one together, police is extra) for FD and EMS has implemented to be able to get whatsapp locations tho. Very useful indeed. But as a ambulance you still have to search sometimes 🙈
