WhatsApp Messenger Gets Group Calling for Voice and Video

Nichole VegaJul 31, 2018

The messaging app also shares that WhatsApp users spend more than 2 billion minutes on WhatsApp calls per day. That's right, we have come to know that WhatsApp has now added support for group voice and video calls for iOS as well as Android. Users ca now make a group call with up to three people for a total of four participants in the group voice/video call. To use it, you must first start a call with someone, then click the "add participants" button shown in the top right corner of the chat window.

The new feature is available for WhatsApp Android and iOS users.

WhatsApp has just confirmed that it's adding a radical new way to chat on the app. With WhatsApp's solution only supporting four participants and now only available for mobile users, it seems it's not aiming at Skype just yet.

During Facebook's F8 keynote from a couple of months ago, the company announced some new features that would be coming to WhatsApp, such as group calling.

WhatsApp also allows the receiver to add members to the group call. This means that there is a big group of people waiting to try out the feature. It's unclear which version of the app is required for group calls, but updating to the latest version is always recommended.

People can be added only by the caller/host who starts the call. Its video calls, like other messages sent within the app, are end-to-end encrypted by default, for one thing. "Today, we're launching a test to limit forwarding that will apply to everyone using WhatsApp".
