WhatsApp Brings Out an Update for Group Call Shortcut, Fixes GIF Bug

WhatsApp introduced the group voice and video call feature in August of last year. However, the feature did not work as anticipated and now WhatsApp for Android has received an update that introduces the dedicated call button in group chats.

With the new feature, users can make group calls by adding the participants all at once from a slide-out tray that contains the contact card of all members in a group. The same feature came out for iOS users last month as well.

Initially, the group-calling feature required users to start a conversation with one contact. Once the call was in progress, the caller could tap a button at the top-right corner of the screen to add another participant. As soon as the second contact was connected, an ‘add person’ icon automatically appears at the top above the recipient’s name.

With the update, users will find it more convenient to start group video or voice calls.

Additionally, the new WhatsApp update for Android brings a patch for a bug that was causing the GIF functionality to malfunction, as reported by WABetaInfo on Twitter.

To download the new version of WhatsApp for Android, visit the Google Play store or WhatsApp.com/Android.
