WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature to its messaging app, thanks to which you can now talk to all your friends at the same time. The messaging app following the footsteps of its owner- Facebook will have a “group call” feature just like in Facebook messenger.  


According to WaBetaInfo, a popular website that tests new WhatsApp features early, the 2.17.70 beta WhatsApp update has confirmed group calls. “There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference to group video calls. So group video calls are partially confirmed at the moment," WaBetaInfo tweeted on Sunday. The website further notes that the references found by them are very reliable, however invisible to daily users and the hidden subtleties have allowed them to figure these hints as they did for the "WhatsApp for iPad.”



How it works is that the beta update- 2.17.70  sends a request to the server to ask if the user you are calling is in another group call. The latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android has more in store, including updates such as a smaller app size and a notification feature that would alert your friends when you change your number. The second update was announced by a technology website Teknepolis, whenever one will change their phone number in WhatsApp, their contacts will receive notification of the update. Best part- the feature would work every time you change your phone number.


As for the groups on WhatsApp, the messaging app has announced new upcoming advanced features for improved group management, including a tool that will prevent the group creator to be deleted from the group by other administrators. The latter on WhatsApp groups will also be able to choose which participants can alter the subject of the group, its icon, and its description. The much anticipated "unsend" feature in WhatsApp will be soon unveiled out to all users.Users will also be able to send money to their contacts with WhatsApp’s  instant money transfer via the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) transaction system.


In a recent tweet, WABetaInfo, also announced that the messaging app is finally testing the "Delete for Everyone" feature."The server finally works and it successfully recalls the message. It will be remotely enabled later and seen that WhatsApp 'enabled' their servers for the Delete for Everyone feature, it may really be enabled soon." The feature will enable users to recall or unsend texts, images, videos, GIFs, documents, quoted messages and even status replies within a five-minute window.
