While WhatsApp has yet to release out the stickers feature for Android, the instant messaging app has finally begun rolling out its long-awaited group audio and video calling feature. The new feature will allow users to host a conference call with up to four people at any given time.
The feature will be available to both Android and iOS users, and WhatsApp says that all audio and video calls made through this function are “end-to-end” encrypted. Just like other chats conducted on the app itself. WhatsApp also promised that the app should work reliably, even with countries with less-than-favourable network conditions.
WhatsApp is one of the world’s most downloaded instant messaging app on both Android and iOS. To date, the app has more than 1.5 billion monthly active users, and many of them rely on the instant messaging app as their primary form of communication. As mentioned, the new feature is still being rolled out. So if you don’t have it yet, chances are that the company is rolling it out in batches.
