WhatsApp to Get Group Voice & Video Calling Feature Soon

A line of code was discovered which suggested that if a user makes a voice call to someone on WhatsApp the app will send a request to the server whether the person is busy or not

WaBetaInfo is a website that checks the features of the WhatsApp and the website itself has confirmed that the launch is for real that was kept as a secret for a long time.

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.

Along with this feature, the update will also carry a new update that will help with an easy transition between phone numbers.If a user changes their number, WhatsApp will notify all contacts on their list about the change. Earlier, WABetaInfo said "The 2.17.70 iOS update has very hidden references to group calls! Before it was an internal news, now it's all confirmed".

"WhatsApp 2.17.70 sends a request to the server to ask if the user you are calling is in another group call!"

The app's new feature could prove useful for group chats (and the quality of calls is better on WhatsApp than Facebook anyway) but will require everyone in the group to be available to chat. There is also an option to prevent the creator of the group to be deleted from the group by other co-administrators. With the Delete for Everyone" feature, those messages you send in the in the heat of anger to your friends, or those you meant to sent to your girlfriend, which you mistakenly sent to you mum, can be deleted from from their Whatsapp timeline using "unsend' button.


It seems that Facebook-owned WhatsApp is all set to bring group calling feature to the app.

The most recent feature found on WhatsApp for iOS beta version is YouTube integration.

The consistent rise in a smartphone's computational power is enabling applications like WhatsApp to delve into other genres of communication. While sharing the location other users in the group will be able to see the rest of the members below the map who have shared their live locations.

WhatsApp will also facilitate instant money transfer via the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) transaction system soon. The messaging app is now available in 50 different languages around the world.
