During the past Facebook F8,what group video calls would soon land in. Since then, we have been able to know, through tracks that were appearing in the code of the beta versions of the app.
But it seems that the wait has come to an end. As they count, some users have already received the option to make video calls and group voice calls in the messaging application par excellence, only a few days after some iOS users reported the appearance of this function in the app.
Apparently, WhatsApp would be testing with a limited number of users before the deployment of this option globally. Therefore, it is most likely that most users of the service do not receive the option to make group video calls until the end of this trial period. Even so, it is worth mentioning that those users who have been able to make this type of group calls, have done so through the beta version 2.18.162 of the application.
The operation of the option is as Facebook showed us in the F8 developer conference: within a call, either voice or video with another person, it will be possible add other contacts through the “+” button that will appear in one of the corners . Once inside, the user will see the avatars and the names of all the members of the call, or the video in case it is a.
Initially, there will only be four members that can be part of a call , therefore those that look for a more powerful solution, will have to resort to other services. Still, it is expected that WhatsApp continue to improve this function over time. Meanwhile, we have to wait until the day that finally reaches all users of the platform.
