WhatsApp group voice and video call feature: Wait is finally over! Facebook-owned WhatsApp has started rolling out group voice and video calling support for a wider range of audience on both iOS and Android smartphone users. The feature is available for WhatsApp Beta users on Android. iOS users can avail group voice and video calling support through the latest update. The final release of the feature is expected soon. Hence, non-Beta users on Android would have to wait for some time, but not for very long.
WABetaInfo informs that WhatsAapp will enable group voice and video calls for Windows Phone users as well. Such users can expect to avail the feature soon. Facebook had announced group voice and video calling feature for WhatsApp at its F8 conference in May. The feature was initially available for only a few users.
The group calling feature is easy to use and simple. You can use this feature to talk to four people at the same time.
