Group voice calls the next new feature coming to WhatsApp

WhatsApp has been a nerve center for millions of its users with its free encrypted chat and free voice/video calling features.

The report says that WhatsApp has announced high-end features for a better group administration. Then in November a year ago, the company rolled out the video calling feature. The WhatsApp has also given an incredible feature like one can update the 24-hour status apart from the static status. It is worth noting that WhatsApp already has a "Current Location" sharing feature but that is a one-time feature and others are not able to track the location of the sender as they move. "So group video calls are partially confirmed at the moment". "And if more than one person shares their Live Location in the group, all locations will be visible on the same map".

You can now use the popular messaging app to ring up your individual contacts, but the voice and video call options only appear inside one-on-one conversations. The feature was spotted in the latest beta version of the messaging app by WABetaInfo. The developers behind the chatting app are always adding new updates and performance tweaks which enhance the user experience WhatsApp offers.

Earlier today, we go to see that WhatsApp is all set to roll out the group voice calling ability. The latest update on WhatsApp's upcoming feature is based on a code found in the new Beta version of the app on iPhone.

WaBetaInfo unearthed the hidden references within the 2.17.70 beta release.

One of the most anticipated features that this new update brings is mark chat as unread.

It's worth pointing out that you can't access 999, 911, or other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp. In case we are lucky we might even get WhatsApp Group Video Calling feature in the beta version as well. Apart from this, WhatsApp for iOS in the future will also allow the group administrator to remove multiple participants from the group at once. Also, admins will be given powers to decide whether other members of the group can change the subject of the group, its icon, and description.
