WhatsApp to get group calling feature WhatsApp has been on a roll. This Facebook-owned messaging app is known to add timely tweaks and the latest one is probably here. WhatsApp is now believed to be adding group voice calls. And, this comes from none other than WABetaInfo, known to keep track of WhatsApp updates.
Take a look at the tweet below:
The 2.17.70 update has very hidden references to group calls! Before that was an internal news, now it's all confirmed 😇😇🎉— WABetaInfo (@WABetaInfo) October 21, 2017
The group voice call feature is said to be hidden in the code. And, there isn't just the mention of group voice calls, but also a reference to video call.
The 2.17.70 iOS update has very hidden references to group calls!— WABetaInfo (@WABetaInfo) October 21, 2017
Before it was an internal news, now it's all confirmed 😇😇🎉
For example, WhatsApp 2.17.70 sends a request to the server to ask if the user you are calling is in another group call!
So, these could be among the most anticipated features coming from WhatsApp, besides the delete and unsend feature that we have all been waiting for. We have been often hearing about how the company will allow users to recall a sent message. An earlier leak had revealed a screenshot showing the Unsend or Delete feature. It had almost confirmed the feature.
So, it the reports are to be believed then WhatsApp is currently testing 'group' voice and video calling features and also the ability to unsend a message.
