WhatsApp is planning to launch Group Voice and Video calls shortly.

Apps like Snapchat, WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram have been increasingly "borrowing" features off one another.

WhatsApp's reportedly working on enabling group video and voice calls for iOS and Android, 2 in-demand features which have been rumored for a while.

Additionally, the latest WhatsApp version update has new features for administrator for groups. This feature already exists on Facebook Messenger.

"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", it added. 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.

Earlier this year, it was reported that WhatsApp beta for Windows Phone came with a nifty feature that sends a notification to all the WhatsApp contacts when a user changes his/her number, making the whole process less cumbersome. Moreover, there is the option to prevent the group creator to be deleted from the group by other administrators.

The admins on WhatsApp group will be able to decide whether the participants can modify the subject of the group, its icon and description.

And now, the site says it has confirmed the upcoming feature in WhatsApp's 2.17.70 beta release. The Facebook-owned messaging app has been adding a lot of feature for its over 1 billion users.

WhatsApp users should be happy to know that a new update has recently made available for download.

Users will be allowed to share live location with their contacts and even groups.

WhatsApp will also facilitate instant money transfer via the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) transaction system soon.

This means that only people you choose to share your location with should be able to access this information, protecting it from intrusion from hackers, governments and other third parties.
