Soon! WhatsApp To Support Group Calls, Hints In Latest Beta Update

WhatsApp recently introduced a new feature for its Android and iOS users called the live location sharing.

WhatsApp is the most popular messaging platform on earth yet it is rather slow in delivering the features its competitors already have. 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.

The feature was spotted in the latest beta version of the messaging app by WABetaInfo, along with a photo shared by the company that appears to show a group chat containing video and voice call buttons.

"The v2.17.70 iOS update has very hidden references to group calls! And if more than one person shares their Live Location in the group, all locations will be visible on the same map".

We all know that free Android games aren't always free these days, but many of them are very close if you have a little patience.

It is expected that the new feature will work just like the Skype group calling.

Some users have expressed safety concerns as this might be used by strangers to harm others, some who may not be tech-savvy hence unaware.

Facebook is also working on a group video chat app called Bonfire, but it's only available to a small number of users right now.

As faster internet connectivity is available to the masses now, people are using video calling a lot more than ever.

The new WhatsApp v2.17.70 will also send a request to the server to ask if one calling the user is on another call or not.

You can download the latest version of WhatsApp version 2.17.70 beta from APK Mirror but we are not sure it has the WhatsApp Group Voice Calling feature.

It seems that Facebook-owned WhatsApp is all set to bring group calling feature to the app. The administrator can now control whether participants can modify the group subject, icon and its description. Among other features, one exciting feature include a tool that will prevent the group creator to be deleted from group by other admin. According to WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp is also trying the Unsend and Delete for Everyone features as well. Moreover, the version will have an option to notify your contacts if you change your phone number.
