Latest good news from WhatsApp is that WhatsApp Beta has hints about group audio as well as video calling features, set to coming soon.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging app in the world and many new features such as video calling and status updates have only been added in the last year or two.
WhatsApp is testing the group calling feature on internally. The latest 2.17.70 beta release contains a lot of references to audio conference calling. Users will be able to add other WhatsApp users while being on an audio call with someone. A line of code was discovered which suggested that if a user makes a voice call to someone on WhatsApp, the app will send a request to the server whether the person is busy or not. The latest beta update is full of similar references. Fewer yet similar references for the same have been found for video calling too.
With faster Internet connectivity now available to the masses, more and more people are using video calling in the current times. WhatsApp is the most widely used messaging app and it wouldn’t be bad to include conferencing calls to the app.
