The much awaited Whatsapp group calling feature with both voice and video support is finally live.
The feature had earlier been announced by Facebook at its annual F8 developer conference in May this year.
The latest WhatsApp feature is now available for users around the world on iOS and Android.
But what needs to be understood is that the group calling feature supports up to four people at the same time.
WhatsApp users are claimed to be spending over 2 billion minutes on calls per day, meaning the group video calls was a highly-anticipated feature.
The app is now starting to add group video calling to its iOS and Android app and it supports up to four people, the company has announced.
WhatsApp says that the new feature is engineered to work under slow network conditions.
In order to start a group call, start a video or voice call with one of the contacts. Following this, you will see a button at the top-right corner of the screen that will let you add another participant to the call.>
