After being teased several weeks ago, WhatsApp has finally launched its long-awaited group video calling for Android and iOS users both. The WhatsApp video call can accommodate four persons at the same time. The new addition which is live now for the users comes with tightened security as WhatsApp said that calls are “end-to-end encrypted” like its other chats available.
Back in May, at Facebook F8 developers conference, it was announced that WhatsApp was officially going to get group calling sometime in the future along with a lot of features.
To start a group call, initiate one-on-one video or voice call with a single person and start adding participants using the button at the top right corner of the screen and can add a total of three participants which would make it four-person video call.
WhatsApp states that there are over 2 billion minutes of WhatsApp voice calls used daily and with the addition of group voice calls, this number is just set to increase and it has been engineered the feature to work under less-than-stellar network conditions to make video chat a friend or family member from a far-flung place until users are under the reach of network. With the group video calling of WhatsApp the Facebook-owned three entities including Instagram, Facebook Messenger are now equipped with group video calling.
