WhatsApp for iPhone Reportedly Gets Group Audio Calls

Whatsapp for iPhone is said to have started receiving group audio calls functionality. This means that you’ll soon be able to make voice calls to your multiple contacts directly through the instant messaging app. For Android users, on the other hand, WhatsApp has added a ‘Select All’ option that lets you easily mark all the new messages as read or archive all your chats with a single tap. The new change for iPhone users is apparently rolling through a server-side update, while Android devices need to have WhatsApp beta version 2.18.60 or above. The latest developments come just after WhatsApp for Android added a Media Visibility feature to let users hide or show their WhatsApp media content in the gallery. The Android version also received a new contact shortcut that was previously available for iPhones to help users easily add a new contact directly through the instant messaging app.

According to a report, the interface of group audio calls looks similar to what you presently have for individual audio calls. There are buttons to enable speaker, video call, and mute just below the profile pictures of the participants. The limit of participants for group audio calls hasn’t been revealed. Reportedly, it is available to only a handful of users a present, and we weren’t able to verify its existence from our end.

Having said that, the tweet posted by the WABetaInfo team claims that it is rolling out on the WhatsApp for iPhone version 2.18.60. This is the same version that received the ‘Request Account Info’ feature earlier this week to let you download all your data that has been collected by WhatsApp, including your account information and settings.

Alongside the group audio calling for iPhone users, WhatsApp beta for Android has received a new update that brings the useful Select All option. This new option lets you quickly mark all your unread messages as read or archive them at once. Further, you can also mute all the contacts from whom you’ve talked on WhatsApp using the Select all option. You can also quickly delete all the chats with this new feature.
