WhatsApp's working on group voice, video calls

WhatsApp's working on group voice, video calls

Just last week, WhatsApp launched its new Live Location feature for both Android and iOS.

Facebook Messenger allows group calls already, but the same functionality could prove much more popular on WhatsApp, as the quality of calls made through it tends to be much better. One of the new tools that will be introduced will bring in a situation on any group admin can not remove the creator of the group. "So group video calls are partially confirmed at the moment", WaBetaInfo tweeted on Sunday. Earlier, WABetaInfo said "The 2.17.70 iOS update has very hidden references to group calls!"

With over 1.2 billion monthly active users, WhatsApp is available in more than 50 different languages around the world and in 10 Indian languages. For example, if you are on a call with your friend, you can add another friend into the call simply by pressing the add button and group call including the 3 of you will be created.

In the meanwhile, the Group Voice calling is almost confirmed as one could find multiple mentions of the same.

As faster internet connectivity is available to the masses now, people are using video calling a lot more than ever. After adding live location sharing, stories, pinning favourite chats to the top, quoted replies, and text-only status updates, the company is internally testing group video and voice calls.

Whatsapp has announced that they are now going to be letting users share the location with friends and family in real time.

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! However, according to the code, there is a reference to the same feature for groups, but for video calling as well. Moreover, there is the option to prevent the group creator to be deleted from the group by other administrators. 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.

In the quest to ensure privacy, end-to-end encrypted feature will allow you to choose who you share your location with and for how long.

WhatsApp is also said to be testing the Unsend and Delete for Everyone features.
