WhatsApp to roll out more features to group admins soon

A line of code was discovered which suggested that if a user makes a voice call to someone on WhatsApp the app will send a request to the server whether the person is busy or not

Just last week, WhatsApp launched its new Live Location feature for both Android and iOS. This feature already exists on Facebook Messenger. Before that was an internal news, now it's all confirmed." they further Tweeted that "There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference to group video calls. The world's most popular messaging app added the voice-calling feature in February 2015 and by June 2016, more than 100 million voice calls are made per day on WhatsApp.

WhatsApp appears to be planning to bring voice and video calls to group chats.

WaBetaInfo unearthed the hidden references within the 2.17.70 beta release.

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. Some other features that are expected from the Facebook-owned company is WhatsApp for iPad. 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.

The new WhatsApp v2.17.70 will also send a request to the server to ask if one calling the user is on another call or not.

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. However, according to the code, there is a reference to the same feature for groups, but for video calling as well. More importantly, there will also be a feature which would prevent the group creator from being deleted by other members. You can choose to inform all or a selected few contacts from your contact list of the number change. But now, WaBetaInfo, a site that tests new WhatsApp features notes that the feature is being tested and will soon be rolled out to those who use a beta version of WhatsApp. Moreover, the version will have an option to notify your contacts if you change your phone number.
