One of the most popular messaging applications in the world, WhatsApp has brought a new feature that will make your life a lot easier. The update is for Android users and also for iOS users. With this update, WhatsApp allows a user to have group video calls. Earlier this month, it was announced that the update would be implemented in a couple of weeks.
With the new group video call feature of WhatsApp, you can now add up to four group members to join a video call on the messaging platform. If you use a smartphone that runs on Android, you should look for the latest update, which is 2.18.145 and later. If you are using an updated version of WhatsApp, you will have to be “very lucky” to use the new feature. As stated in the famous tipster WaBetaInfo, the feature, even with the updated version of the application, does not work. Only a few users can use the new function. And the new feature cannot be activated with an invitation system.
If you use an Apple device, look for version 2.18.52 of WhatsApp for iOS. However, you must be very fortunate to use the new function.
How to initiate WhatsApp group calls
- Open WhatsApp
- Select a participant you want to call.
- Make a regular call.
- Check if there is a new button “Add participant.”
- If there is, then you can now have group calls if you do not, then you cannot.
In January of this year, WhatsApp confirmed if they had been working on a version to enable group video calls. In February it was approved that this new feature would be available for the “future” messaging application. Then, at its annual F8 developer conference, Facebook mentioned that a lot of new features would be directed to WhatsApp, including support for group video calls in the coming weeks.
This feature is live and can be seen by few users.
