WhatsApp has been rolling out new features time to time for the convenience of its user. Recently WhatsApp is working closely to stop the forwarding message feature because of the strictness of the Government. But, here we are talking about the live train updates.
Indian Railways has partnered with MakeMyTrip to provide the live updates of the Train on WhatsApp. The process is pretty simple to get live status.
- Just save this number on your device 7349389104.
- Whenever you need an update, send the train number, and you’ll receive the update.
The earliest you can get an update is 10 seconds if server is not busy. In case of server been busy, you may have to wait for some time as well.
The primary purpose of Indian Railway to bring this feature to it travellers is to cut short the call they get on 139 for live status. There is NTES app but, it is not usable for everyone. This feature simplifies to get the live status of Train within a click. There are also several third parties app and website to get the train status as well but with this simple service launched by Railways will help people travelling on a regular basis.
