WhatsApp Beta testing group voice and video calls, Official update soon

Whatsapp'Live Location feature spurs controversy

In the code, it was discovered that, calling someone who is already on another call, sends a request to the server in order to check whether the user is busy in another group call. The new location sharing feature is an advanced version of the existing location sharing option on the app. However, the group video calling is mentioned only once and in all likelihood, the feature may be added at a much later stage.

WhatsApp now allows users to make voice and video calls to their individual contacts, but the options only appear inside one-on-one conversations.

Note that these references we found are very strong (but they aren't visible for you at present) and they have allowed us to understand what WhatsApp is going to add in the application, as we did for WhatsApp for iPad. It had reported that WhatsApp is testing an "Unsend and Delete for everyone" feature.

Apps like Snapchat, WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram have been increasingly "borrowing" features off one another. Reports are such that WhatsApp may officially roll out this feature very soon, however, the Facebook-owned messaging platform hasn't revealed any details on the same as of yet.

This rumoured function will work a bit like a conference call, allowing people from around the world to chat at the same time for free so long as long as they've got a web connection.

The service uses Voice Over IP (VOIP) to place calls to your WhatsApp contacts, enabling users to avoid global call rates.
