Updated 24 September 2023


In this blog,
I have shown how to fetch your current location using the older Apis. Google introduce the new API on the basis of the google play services.

For any location based application, this functionality is very use full to your user. So there are few steps to fetch your location in android.

How to fetch your location

Step 1: First all create a class which extends the Service class and implements the LocationListener,

Step 2: Then create the Location instance and try to get the latitude and longitude by the Location manager,

Create a method which returns the location instance with getting the lat-long,

Step 3: Create the function to getting the Latitude and Longitude,

Step 4: Create another class from where to get the location,

Step 5: After successfully getting the lat-long, we can get the user current location by Reverse Geocoding

Note: Reverse geocoding is the process of back (reverse) coding of a point location (latitude, longitude) to a readable address or place name. This permits the identification of nearby street addresses, places, and/or areal subdivisions such as neighbourhoods, county, state, or country.
