That being said, completing sidelining normal text messages was never an easy task and now Facebook-owned WhatsApp is in no mood to let go of its dominance. This feature lets you easily select all the new messages and mark them as read/unread or archive all your chats with a single tap. Facebook is adding a new feature/option in its sharing menu that lets users share any form of the post directly to WhatsApp.

Notably, Whatsapp group video calls with the maximum of 4 persons is already in the pipeline. This allows users to send messages to numbers not saved in their contact list.

After many rumors and speculations, we saw reports suggesting that select Android and iOS users have received the group video calling feature. WhatsApp has recently added two new features to the Android beta app including a new contact shortcut and media visibility feature.

The maximum number of group members allowed to enter a group audio chat is yet to be known. The group audio calling is going to be vastly similar to the single audio calling feature, with the usual options of enabling speaker, switching to video call and mute. An update for Android hasn't been released yet. The feature allows you to download all your personal information that has been collected by WhatsApp including your account information and settings.
