Facebook-owned WhatsApp announced that it has started rolling out the group calls for voice and video for everyone starting today. The feature is rolling out on Android and iOS from today and, it should be available for everyone over the next few days.
The group calling feature supports up to four people simultaneously, regardless of where those people are.
WhatsApp has said that just like all the text messages and one-on-one voice and video calls, group voice and video calls are also going to be end-to-end encrypted.
To start using this feature, one can tap on the new “add participant” button in the top right corner while on a video or a voice call to add more contacts to the call.
WhatsApp had first launched voice calling in 2014 and added video calling feature in 2016. The company claims that its users spend over 2 billion minutes on calls per day.
