Messaging service WhatsApp plans to roll out a feature that allows calls involving more than two people.

“Voice and video calling are very popular on WhatsApp, and we’re excited to share that group calling will be coming in the months ahead,” said the company in a statement.

The feature was announced during Facebook’s F8 keynote event in San Jose, California, earlier this month.

According to Ubergizmo, the feature will be available for both iOS and Android users with the latest version of WhatsApp beta 2.18.162.

With this feature, users can add another contact while they are in a video call with someone else, allowing them to do a group video call. (jes/kes)
