In February this year, we reported how Facebook-owned social messaging platform; WhatsApp – was working a group calling feature that supports up to 5 people in beta versions of Android, looks like the feature might roll out soon as it’s reportedly said to been seen in selected users.
This follows the announcement the Menlo Park-based social networking firm, Facebook announced at their annual developers gathering; F8. However, there was no mention of when the feature would be available to all users.
According to online reports, now a few users are reporting that they are seeing the feature in their apps (WhatsApp iOS version 2.18.52 and Android beta version 2.18.145), and are able to use it. However, it’s only available to selected users. Even those that are in the WhatsApp beta community (us inclusive), haven’t received the feature as yet.
In the screenshot posted by WABetaInfo on their official Twitter account, in the top-right corner, one can add four more members in a video call on the top right corner. If added up, it includes you and four other participants. Thus, making it a total of four (at most five users – according to other reports).
