# Method: contacts.getLocated

Back to methods index

Get contacts near you

# Parameters:

Name Type Description Required
background Bool While the geolocation of the current user is public, clients should update it in the background every half-an-hour or so, while setting this flag.
Do this only if the new location is more than 1 KM away from the previous one, or if the previous location is unknown.
geo_point InputGeoPoint Geolocation Optional
self_expires int If set, the geolocation of the current user will be public for the specified number of seconds; pass 0x7fffffff to disable expiry, 0 to make the current geolocation private; if the flag isn’t set, no changes will be applied. Optional

# Return type: Updates

# Can bots use this method: NO

# MadelineProto Example (now async for huge speed and parallelism!):

if (!file_exists('madeline.php')) {
    copy('https://phar.madelineproto.xyz/madeline.php', 'madeline.php');
include 'madeline.php';

$MadelineProto = new \danog\MadelineProto\API('session.madeline');

$Updates = $MadelineProto->contacts->getLocated(['background' => Bool, 'geo_point' => InputGeoPoint, 'self_expires' => int, ]);

Or, if you’re into Lua:

Updates = contacts.getLocated({background=Bool, geo_point=InputGeoPoint, self_expires=int, })
