While group voice and video call feature is here, it is not as extensive as FaceTme on iOS 12.

To enjoy the feature, you need to make sure your WhatsApp is up to date. Many small and mid-sized companies use Skype for video conference calls, but a lot of users are unhappy with the way Microsoft has been developing their platform.

Russia's Putin says He Invited Trump to Moscow
US officials have said Russian interfered in the 2016 election, and McConnell says he thinks the Russians will try again in 2018. He says she refused to do that and stayed "despite staff, Secret Service, everyone trying to usher everyone out of the room".

WhatsApp first promised group video and voice calls for its 1.5 billion active users in May during the Facebook F8 developer conference.

On the top right corner, you will see an icon to add more participants to the call. Also, the calling has been created to work reliably around the world in different network conditions, according to the company. The feature is now rolling out to users globally. However, on Android, video calling is only available on Android 4.1.

40 lakh people excluded from Assam's draft National Register of Citizens
Accusing the Centre of trying to forcibly evict 40 lakh people, she said, "It is a matter of grave concern". More than 70 people died and a bunch of pleas reached the Supreme Court thereafter.

Furthermore, the company said that the feature has been designed with vast attention to connectivity. This means a user can add up to three contacts on a group audio and video call. It's unclear which version of the app is required for group calls, but updating to the latest version is always recommended. The company is now starting to gradually roll out group video and audio call functionality to its userbase. While beta users could engage in group calls with non-beta users the former couldn't make calls from their end. Tapping it does exactly what it should: it dismisses the notification and marks the message as read so it doesn't resurface when you open the app or get another notification.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow leveled the charge Tuesday night, accusing the White House of deliberately leaving out the question. Any group listening only to the translation side would have a hard time getting the full question, and so it was left out.
