"The feature is now rolling out on the iPhone and Android versions of our app", reads the WhatsApp blog post posted on July 30. The company claims that its users spend over 2 billion minutes on calls per day.

The major difference is WhatsApp video call screen will have a video feed from participants (including the person who started the call), while group audio call screen will have profile pictures of all participants except for the person who started the call.

WhatsApp had announced this feature at Facebook's F8 conference earlier this May. In order to make a group call, users just need to follow simple steps. You will be able to add up to three participants for a total of four people in a video or voice call. After the beta rollout that happened last month, the chat app is now finally moving out its group calling feature from beta to stable version.

McDonald's has been an influential global force over the years, and its burger prices have even become an indicator for the purchasing power of an economy.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp on Tuesday officially rolled out its group calling feature for all users on Android and iOS. Notably, the group calling feature supports up to four people at the same time.

"Group calls are always end-to-end encrypted, and we've designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions".

Tap on that icon and add a member to the call from your contact list. "We're excited to announce that group calls for voice and video are coming to WhatsApp starting today". Users can then search for or select another contact they want to add to the call. My father also tried but he didnt have the option to add a participant despite being on the latest Play Store version.
