WhatsApp the most popular messaging app has started group audio call feature for its iPhone users.
According to the WABetaInfo, now iPhone users will be able to make audio calls to multiple contacts at the same time. The update is rolling out through a server-side update. The interface of the group audio call is similar to the current interface of audio calls in WhatsApp.
The limit to add individuals to the group call is not defined yet. However, there are buttons to start the video call, enable speaker and mute option just below the profile picture of the participants.
According to the tweet posted by WABetaInfo, the feature is rolling out for iPhone version 2.18.60 and has been updated by only a few users.
