"There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference about group video calls", WaBetaInfo tweeted.
WhatsApp announced the feature on their official blog, where the Facebook owned company was keen to play up their end-to-end encryption security measures that are created to keep your location details safe.
Though the giant is yet to confirm the feature but in a hint unearthed by a technology website, WaBetaInfo confirms the presence of a group call feature in the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android.
The WABetaInfo which reports on WhatsApp said the 2.17.70 iOS update has very hidden references to group calls. There is also no option to add more people to an ongoing call. In case we are lucky we might even get WhatsApp Group Video Calling feature in the beta version as well.
It's worth pointing out that you can't access 999, 911, or other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp. For example, if you are on a call with your friend, you can add another friend into the call simply by pressing the add button and group call including the 3 of you will be created.
It was earlier reported that the WhatsApp was working on a group voice calls and could release the feature next year.
For example, WhatsApp 2.17.70 sends a request to the server to ask if the user you are calling is in another group call! Last week, WhatsApp rolled out its live location sharing feature for Android and iOS. Apart from this, WhatsApp for iOS in the future will also allow the group administrator to remove multiple participants from the group at once.
In the quest to ensure privacy, end-to-end encrypted feature will allow you to choose who you share your location with and for how long. With the Delete for Everyone" feature, those messages you send in the in the heat of anger to your friends, or those you meant to sent to your girlfriend, which you mistakenly sent to you mum, can be deleted from from their Whatsapp timeline using "unsend' button.
