These features help in making the user experience much better. Reports suggest that the company is now working on bringing the group calling feature to the application.

According to WABetaInfo, the group video call feature will soon make its way to WhatsApp for Android. Initially, the group call will only allow a maximum of four participants in total. This new feature was found hidden in the Beta 2.17.437 version of the application. The next application update (2.17.443) brought a hidden string which said, “Couldn’t switch between voice and video call because this feature isn’t available in a group call."

Moving on further, the latest Beta updates for the app also bring stickers. The stickers found on WhatsApp look very similar to what we have seen on Facebook Messenger application. With the new stickers integration, the company is trying to cope up with the competition like Hike Messenger. The stickers tab was spotted on the WhatsApp Beta 2.18.32 for Android.
