Facebook is having the Group voice / video calling feature already.

WhatsApp has become the most popular messaging app in the world and it is expected to add group calling feature so as to enhance online connectivity among users, reports website WABetaInfo.

Interestingly enough, WhatsApp itself offered up a clue about its plans just last week.

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.

WaBetaInfo unearthed the hidden references within the 2.17.70 beta release. Check more details of WhatsApp Group Call conferencing from here below.

Moreover, the references to group calls were found in update 2.17.20 for iOS, but, we are pretty sure that Android users too will get this group calling feature.

As faster internet connectivity is available to the masses now, people are using video calling a lot more than ever.

WABetaInfo first revealed earlier this month that WhatsApp is "internally working" on a group voice-calling feature.

After opting-in to the feature, it would allow the users to track their friends' location on the map which will update automatically with movement. Also, admins will be given powers to decide whether other members of the group can change the subject of the group, its icon, and description.

Another otion is also to prevent the group creator to be deleted from the group by other administrators. You can choose to inform all or a selected few contacts from your contact list of the number change. WhatsApp is also speculated to be testing Unsend and Delete for Everyone features across its platform.
