WhatsApp Group Voice Calls Coming Soon
WABetaInfo confirmed that 2.17.70 beta WhatsApp update will be coming with group calls feature. WABetaInfo took Twitter to confirm the news:
“There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference about group video calls. So group video calls are partially confirmed at the moment.”
Way back, there were strong buzz that WhatsApp was working on a group voice calls and could release the feature next year. The latest beta version of WhatsApp update has brought a slew of great features including a smaller app size and a notification feature notifies your friends when you change your number.
Every time you change your number in WhatsApp, your friends will see a notification.
WhatsApp is working on advanced features to improve group management. The messenger has given more powers to group administrators. A newly introduced feature will now prevent group admins to be deleted from the group by other administrators.
The WhatsApp group administrators can now decide if other participants can modify the subject of the group, its icon and its description.
Other noteworthy feature that we can expect in upcoming updates is an ‘unsend feature’. The feature, as name suggests will allow users to recall or unsend texts, images, videos, GIFs, documents, quoted messages and even status replies within a five-minute window.
