WhatsApp users start receiving group video calling feature

WhatsApp was said to be working on a video group calling feature back in January this year. Fast forward a few months and the feature has reportedly reached end users. The feature spotted by WABeta Info, has reached select users on both the major OS versions – Android and iOS.

According to a post by WABeta info, this new group video calling feature has reached iOS in v2.18.52. Besides adding that this feature reached limited users, it has also been mentioned that users won’t get this feature using an invitation system. On Android, this is available on Android beta 2.18.145 and later versions.

As seen in the screenshot posted by the website, the feature can be seen during a one-to-one video calling on WhatsApp. During the call, a small icon is visible on the top right corner of the screen from where users can add more people in the particular call.

It is not for sure when WhatsApp will roll out this feature to all the end users. However, since it has arrived select users, it will likely reach all iOS and Android users across the globe soon.

Recently, WhatsApp added a feature on its WhatsApp Business app to help businesses reach and serve you better. The company was said to soon add ‘Chat filters’ that will help admins of WhatsApp Business accounts search messages quickly. The ‘Chat filters’ options will group users in unread chats, groups and broadcast categories.

As for the admin, he/she can simply tap on the search bar to access these filters.

This feature seems similar to the ‘action button’ on Instagram which helps businesses to bring chats of priority customers directly to the inbox. With this feature on WhatsApp, businesses can expect to have better and timely communication with their priority and potential customers to provide better service.
