WhatsApp Group Voice Call and Video Call Coming Soon to iOS

According to Independent.co.uk (via WABetaInfo), WhatsApp is planning to bring voice and video calls to group chats. This is not the first time that we have been hearing about WhatsApp testing group calling feature.

Whatsapp will now allow users to share their location real time.

After their latest live location sharing feature, WhatsApp is adding one more feature to their interface, Group Voice Calling! At the moment, you can use the app to ring contacts individually but voice and video call options are only available in one-on-one conversations.

Of course, we all know that it's mostly preferable to call on wifi / 3G / 4G network, but given the connectivity variation in Nigeria, you can never be sure of the other person's internet connectivity.

Over the years, there have been calls to improve some WhatsApp features like the Missed Calls problem where missed call notifications on Whatsapp pop up without your phone ever ringing.

There was no exact date as to when the feature would roll out but WhatsApp beta's Twitter account confirmed that the feature is being tested.

WhatsApp is rumoured to be plotting a face-saving feature which lets you "unsend" messages after they've been sent. It further writes, "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". With the Delete for Everyone" feature, those messages you send in the in the heat of anger to your friends, or those you meant to sent to your girlfriend, which you mistakenly sent to you mum, can be deleted from from their Whatsapp timeline using "unsend' button. This bit of information comes from Teknepolis - a technology website. This feature will work everyone a contact changes its contact number.

Hints of developing the feature, which is now available on Facebook Messenger, was spotted in a blog recently.

Just a few months ago, The Facebook-owned app introduced the colourful status feature, (much like Instagram and Snapchat stories).

This new, group voice call feature has been one of the most awaited feature on this popular messaging service. "It will be remotely enabled later and seen that WhatsApp "enabled" their servers for the Delete for Everyone feature, it may really be enabled soon", writes WABetaInfo in a tweet.

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