Is WhatsApp working on group voice, video calls?

Group video calls: partially confirmed?? This is not the first time that we have been hearing about WhatsApp testing group calling feature.

However, the image in the middle clearly shows WhatsApp's symbols for voice call and video call inside a group chat.

Keeping user privacy intact, WhatsApp stated that like all of its other messaging functions, location sharing will be end-to-end encrypted. With this feature, WhatsApp users may unsend a particular message.

WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging service, has rolled out a controversial new feature called Live Location, which allows your friends to track you in real time. However, the group video calling is mentioned only once and in all likelihood, the feature may be added at a much later stage. This means it is sure that group voice calls will be added in the next WhatsApp update and the Group Video call feature is still an uncertainty. As mentioned, the new feature will roll out with the latest the IOS app. But the feature will definitely roll out for Android in the not too distant future. You can choose to inform all or a selected few contacts from your contact list of the number change.

Whatsapp is now testing an "unsend" feature which will help users to get rid of messages sent either by mistake or deliberately.

The website wrote: "Unfortunately there is actually nothing that we can show you as abovementioned, seen that WhatsApp is internally working on it, but when WhatsApp will add something more that will be possible to show, we will immediately publish all screenshots and information".

Location sharing is a common feature across social media platforms, from Snapchat, Facebook and even Instagram. The Facebook-owned WhatsApp has added many features to its platform this year and the latest group voice and video calls feature, if rolled out, would be a ideal end to this year's advancements. It is also expected that WhatsApp might roll out the Unsend and Delete for everyone feature in its next update.

So how do the group voice and video call work?

In a written statement, a spokesman for WhatsApp said: 'Today, we're rolling out a new feature that allows you to share your location in real-time with family or friends.
