After creating quite a buzz, Whatsapp group has finally rolled out its group audio, video call feature for all the Android beta users. All the user has to do is update their app to version 2.18.189. While the group video call will be available for the users with 2.18.189 version of the Whatsapp, audio call is available on version 2.18.192. However, the feature is available for WhatsApp beta only.
It is learned that in the Whatsapp group voice or video call, four persons can join the call at the same moment. One is the person who makes the call, and other three more people can be added to it. To get started, one needs to start a voice call with a contact saved in their phone. On the top right of the call screen, there is an ‘Add participant’ icon, which can be clicked to select another friend from the contact list to add to a voice call. The third and fourth participants can be added in a similar way. The person can join the conversation upon invitation by others only.
The group voice call will show the profile pictures as well as the names of all the other three participants who are on the call. Same goes for the group video call. It will be started following the same procedure. The video call screen will not have names of participants, but video feeds from friends.
Sharing the news with the world, WABetaInfo on Twitter said, "WhatsApp is enabling group voice and video calls for Windows Phone users too. If you didn't get the feature yet, please wait the next days."
While the feature is available for WhatsApp beta users only, the features are expected to reach all Windows phone users in the coming days.
