WhatsApp might've revealed its next major new feature

WABetaInfo has been pretty accurate in unearthing hidden WhatsApp features and this time around they have spotted a group calling feature for the iOS app. The Beta app for Android also suggests that the administrators will get more new features for "groups", such as the ability to select whether users can modify details in the group.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp's group voice calls feature should roll out before the group video calls option now being planned by Facebook called Bonfire. The report added that "There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference to group video calls".

WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging service, has rolled out a controversial new feature called Live Location, which allows your friends to track you in real time. Apple iOS 11 users are facing a ton of problems with the WhatsApp, latest being the delay in pushing the notification on the home screen.

Tore Hongset, the leader of the rescue coordination operation, told Norwegian television, "We have a rescue operation ongoing. Norway has sovereignty over Svalbard but Russian Federation has a small coal-mining community in Barentsburg.

The feature was unearthed by a website called WABetaInfo, which specialises in rooting through the code of beta test versions of the WhatsApp software to work out what's coming in future updates.

Just a few months ago, The Facebook-owned app introduced the colourful status feature, (much like Instagram and Snapchat stories). You can choose to inform all or a selected few contacts from your contact list of the number change. It further writes, "Note that these references we found are very strong (but they aren't visible for you at present) and they have allowed us to understand what WhatsApp is going to add in the application, as we did for WhatsApp for iPad".

Whatsapp is now testing an "unsend" feature which will help users to get rid of messages sent either by mistake or deliberately. WhatsApp is also speculated to be testing Unsend and Delete for Everyone features across its platform. This feature will be called - Delete for Everyone.
