Online chatting platform Whatsapp has rolled out group voice and video calling feature that enables up to four users to video-conference, simultaneously.
According to WhatsApp, both one-to-one voice and video calls and group voice and video calls are end-to-end encrypted, so you can be rest assured that there’s no downgrade in terms of security.
“You can make a group call with up to four people total – anytime and anywhere. Just start a one-on-one voice or video call and tap the new “add participant” button in the top right corner to add more contacts to the call,” announced Whatsapp.
“Group calls are always end-to-end encrypted, and we’ve designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions. The feature is currently rolling out on the iPhone and Android versions of our app.”
The Facebook owned platform announced that users spend over 2 billion minutes on calls per day in the last two years.
