Popular instant messaging app WhatsApp apparently has lots in store for Apple’s iOS users. This is in the form of a new update which has been speculated to simplify group calling for iOS users.
These new updates are also said to be incorporated within a new beta variant of the WhatsApp application. Now, if you are an iOS user, do update WhatsApp on a regular basis especially the edition 2.18.110; here, it is worth noting that rumour mills have been hinting at this enhancement being a dedicated group calling button within WhatsApp for iOS.
Also,the dedicated group calling button is also speculated to be applicable only to iOS as of now; but slated to hit Android users in the near future.
Once the purported group calling button in WhatsApp goes live, it should be worth noting that users should be able to call more than two recipients at any given instant in time. As per a Wabetainfo report, a maximum of 3 other users could be contacted through the group calling feature with the new enhancements; however, the report adds that saving the recipients as contacts would be mandatory.
Apart from the above enhancements, WhatsApp’s beta version 2.18.110 also reportedly incorporates multiple bug fixes and performance boosters. Hence, users can check WhatsApp and share with us on the status of the speculated dedicated group calling button.
