WhatsApp has announced that WhatsApp Messenger has been updated with group calling for voice and video. Now, it seems that other internet messaging apps have started to add the extension as well.

WhatsApp group calling feature allows you to add up to four people on one call. WhatsApp users now spend over two billion minutes on calls per day.

The functionality is pretty simple: To start the video call with one of the contacts, a button on the top right corner of the screen will let the user add another participant to call.

WhatsApp has added video calling support for groups up to four people.

WhatsApp says that its calls are encrypted end-to-end just like its standard messages.

"Over the last couple years, people have enjoyed making voice and video calls on WhatsApp". While group voice and video call feature is here, it is not as extensive as FaceTme on iOS 12. "It has also been pointed out that such a platform can not evade accountability and responsibility, especially when good technological inventions are abused by some miscreants who resort to provocative messages, which lead to spread of violence". This is because WhatsApp's group video calling feature will show four cards for the four participants in the video call which is different from group video calling in FaceTime. The WhatsApp group call is available for both iOS and Android platform. Tapping it does exactly what it should: it dismisses the notification and marks the message as read so it doesn't resurface when you open the app or get another notification.
