The very much in demand feature has finally made a landing on Whatsapp’s cross-platform messaging and Voice over IP service.
The feature was definitely awaited on the app for a very long time.
The Facebook owned messaging app, added the new feature after it began to allow users to make group voice and video calls.
It’s been just over three years since the company, introduced voice calls and later a video option one year later. Today, WhatsApp counts over 1.5 billion monthly users and it says they make over two billion minutes of calls via its service each day.
Starting this week, callers can now add friends by hitting the “add participant” button which appears in the top right corner of their screen. The maximum number of participants is four and, impressively, WhatsApp said the calls are end-to-end encrypted.
That’s not an easy thing to do. Telegram, a self-professed secure messaging app, hasn’t even gotten around to encrypting its group messaging chats, let alone group calls.
