WhatsApp group video, voice calling feature rolls out: How it works
Facebook-owned WhatsApp on Tuesday officially rolled out its group calling feature for all users on Android and iOS. WhatsApp users will now be able to make group calls for audio and video.
WhatsApp had announced this feature at Facebook’s F8 conference earlier this May. The feature then rolled out for WhatsApp beta users on Android earlier this June. While beta users could engage in group calls with non-beta users the former couldn’t make calls from their end.
“Group calls are always end-to-end encrypted, and we’ve designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions,” WhatsApp said in its blog post.
