The Facebook-owned popular messaging app ‘Whatsapp’ has finally rollout group audio and video call feature for its users. The feature was initially available for iPhone users, as of recently Android users will also be able to use this option.
As reported by WABetaInfo and Android Police both iPhone and Android users will be able to make use of this long awaited feature. However, it must be noted that this is a server-side update and it is, at the time, not available for everyone so you might or might not have received the update yet.
The latest WhatsApp beta update 2.18.162 for Android devices and users of iPhone version 2.18.60 can currently use these features. The feature did not just put the users’ long wait to an end but they are pretty easy to use as well.
By simply tapping on the top right icon (for Android) on the screen “Add contact”, a new contact will be added to an ongoing Whatsapp audio or video call. You can also switch between audio and video call as a single contact call. This feature not just limits to adding multiple contacts but it also allows the added/invited contact to see who else is already in the group call.
One thing to be noticed though is that for now the option is available for addition of as much as four contacts in a single call at a time. It might not be the best quality of this feature for people who love big chat groups but it is good to keep the group from being overcrowded and validifies chances of better communication.
If you havent already, try updating to the latest version of Whatsapp and if you are lucky enough you might have already received the update with this new addition to the Whatsapp features.
