Back in May, WhatsApp said it will roll out group voice and video calling feature in coming months.
WhatsApp has 1.5 billion monthly active users and the company says that users spend more than 2 billion minutes on WhatsApp calls per day. Group voice and video calling is not a new feature, as other apps such as Google Hangouts have supported it for a long time.
WhatsApp had announced this feature at Facebook's F8 conference earlier this May. While beta users could engage in group calls with non-beta users the former couldn't make calls from their end.
The group calling feature supports up to four people simultaneously. The group support is available for both video and audio call formats.
To start using this feature, one can tap on the new "add participant" button in the top right corner while on a video or a voice call to add more contacts to the call.
No charges for Minneapolis officers in black man's fatal shooting
On Sunday, officials released bodycam footage of the officer-involved shooting, which showed Blevins uncooperative - and armed. The officer who shot Damond - an Australian woman killed last year - was charged with murder and manslaughter this year.
If you use WhatsApp, starting today, you'll be able to make group video and voice calls.
Initially, the group voice and video calling feature in WhatsApp was announced in May. Along with this, users will also have the option to remove a contact during a voice or video call.
"We believe that these changes - which we'll continue to evaluate - will help keep WhatsApp the way it was created to be: a private messaging app".
The company also claims that group calls are end-to-end encrypted and are created to work on different networks. Additionally, calls are end-to-end encrypted, like all chats on the messaging app.
