WhatsApp testing group calling feature; Unsend, money transfer coming soon

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

At this time, there's no information on the maximum number of people allowed in a single group video or voice call. WhatsApp is also testing new administrator features for groups where the administrator can set who can change the group's name, icon, or description.

It wouldn't have been hard for WhatsApp engineers to introduce the WhatsApp Group Voice Calling feature as Facebook already has a similar feature on Messenger. However, according to the code, there is a reference to the same feature for groups, but for video calling as well.

WhatsApp has been aggressively introducing new features within their application and is also stepping in the social media realm by introducing features like stories.

Users will be allowed to share live location with their contacts and even groups. The new location sharing feature is an advanced version of the existing location sharing option on the app. Users will be able to add other WhatsApp users while being on an audio call with someone at the same time.

While forecasting some yet-to-be-announced features of WhatsApp, WaBetaInfo tweeted, "There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference about group video calls".




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.

According to WABetaInfo, the messaging app is finally testing the "Delete for Everyone" feature.

However, eager WhatsApp users can get their hands on this feature ahead of everyone else by downloading the APK for it.

There were several rumors earlier that there is an update for the group call feature.

Download the New WhatsApp APK from below to test this real-time location updates with your friends, and let us know how it worked for you, try to send in a group with your friends together and see how it works in reality. As mentioned, the new feature will roll out with the latest the IOS app. More importantly, there will also be a feature which would prevent the group creator from being deleted by other members. The "unsend" feature of WhatsApp we are all waiting for, might just launch soon as well.
