Group voice calls the next new feature coming to WhatsApp

Apps like Snapchat, WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram have been increasingly "borrowing" features off one another.

It further said that there are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference about group video calls.

WhatsApp has been a nerve center for millions of its users with its free encrypted chat and free voice/video calling features. 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.

"The v2.17.70 iOS update has very hidden references to group calls!"

If you notice the image below, you can see that the screenshot in the middle shows a person sharing their location with friends in a group chat, but you can also see voice call and video call-related icons at the top right corner. With this feature, WhatsApp users may "un-send" a particular message. 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.

Coming to Android, the latest v2.17.387 beta WhatsApp for Android also brings new administrator features for groups apart from the smaller app size.

According to a tweet by WABetaInfo, the Facebook-owned messaging app might roll out the feature in its next beta update. The latest beta version release has confirmed that there are multiple references to voice conference calling.

"WhatsApp 2.17.70 sends a request to the server to ask if the user you are calling is in another group call!" More importantly, there will also be a feature which would prevent the group creator from being deleted by other members.

You can share this live location for a selected period and can be sent to a group or just a single contact. Moreover, the version will have an option to notify your contacts if you change your phone number. According to WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp is also trying the Unsend and Delete for Everyone features as well.
