WhatsApp Is Working On  Video Calling Support, Group Invites And More Features.

The most important cross-platform messenger Whatsapp has been progressing ever since its introduction from a common messenger to a highly secure and sophisticated application that can even transfer files and videos. WhatsApp has been increasingly adding more and more features over the past year and that is not slowing down. 


Earlier, WhatsApp was supposed to add voicemail, call back, and zip file sharing support to the application service. Despite the fact that there has been no any clue about these rumors, the newest leak from Android Police points towards the company’s plans to add a video calling the function in the future updates. However, this feature is in beta testing for iOS, which is available only for limited devices running the beta version of the app.  

WhatsApp  talk of including video call support has been around since last year December when a couple of leaked images were released by a German website tipping video calling feature in action for Android devices. 

If the new leaked Screenshots are to be believed, then the video calling is also being tested for beta iOS users.  According to Android Police report, users who help in converting WhatsApp to various languages have received new strings to translate quite a few things and that includes ‘Video call’. Additionally, the feature is said to be available on some devices running the beta app, however, it’s not yet activated or apparently need both users to have the same beta app.

In addition, the leaks disclose the opportunity to send group invites via NFC tags and links. WhatsApp is also experimenting ways with which members of a limited group can invite other WhatsApp users to join as well.

Newly, a report by PhoneRadar indicated that WhatsApp for Android and iOS will now get a “Call Back” that will show notifications for a missed call with a callback button. With this new addition, a user will be able to dial back, without opening WhatsApp.

WhatsApp will also announce voicemail for iOS devices. The new “Send Voice Mail” and “Record Voice Mail” buttons will quickly permit users to send a voice mail during a call itself. One can also guess the voicemail to record and share in-call audio as well.

Similarly, WhatsApp users might soon be able to share ZIP files over it. Recently the app included support for users to share DOCS, DOCX, VCF and PDF files. The ZIP file sharing will show to be a very valuable feature for users as it compresses large files. WhatsApp is also end-to-end encrypted, making chats private for all users.
