While forecasting some yet-to-be-announced features of WhatsApp, WaBetaInfo tweeted, "There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference about group video calls. So group video calls are partially confirmed at the moment."

Facebook already has such feature in their messenger application but WhatsApp as per reports was working on it earlier. When the feature comes into use, the users will be able to dodge the pricey international call rates.

"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," WaBetaInfo added.

WhatsApp recently introduced a 'Live Location' in their latest beta update with the help of which the friends will be able to track each other in real-time through the application. After opting-in to the feature, it would allow the users to track their friends' location on the map which will update automatically with movement.
