In the hopes of making it even easier for you to chat with your friends, WhatsApp has recently launched a huge update. The messaging app has launched group calling for voice and video, which started yesterday.
In a blog announcing the update, a spokesperson for WhatsApp said: “You can make a group call with up to four people total – anytime and anywhere.
“Just start a one-on-one voice or video call and tap the new “add participant” button in the top right corner to add more contacts to the call.” Thankfully, WhatsApp confirmed that these group calls will always be end-to-end encrypted.
This ensures that only the members of the group can listen to or view the content of the call. WhatsApp also confirmed that it has designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions. The feature is currently rolling out on the iPhone and Android versions of our app. Do check it out and let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
