The WaBetaInfo Twitter account has become the go to place to get the lowdown on new WhatsApp features before they are made available in the full version of the app.

The report says that WhatsApp has announced high-end features for a better group administration. There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference to group video calls.

WhatsApp has been a nerve center for millions of its users with its free encrypted chat and free voice/video calling features.

As per WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp v2.17.70 beta for iPhone update comes with code references that point towards a group voice and video calling feature. The reference to group calling was found in the 2.17.70 beta release of the app.

WhatsApp added the ability to make phone calls within its chat app past year.

It is expected that the new feature will work just like the Skype group calling. For example, if you are on a call with your friend, you can add another friend into the call simply by pressing the add button and group call including the 3 of you will be created.

Users will be allowed to share live location with their contacts and even groups. The WhatsApp has updated many features like sending multiple pictures at the same time, sending documents of any format, be it word or PDF.

For example, WhatsApp 2.17.70 sends a request to the server to ask if the user you are calling is in another group call! Moreover, there is the option to prevent the group creator to be deleted from the group by other administrators. The latest list of features include the ability to choose if the other participants in the group can modify the subject, icon or description of the group.

We should also mention that WhatsApp users who are planning to download and install this latest APK WhatsApp update are not required to delete their previous version of the app.

Earlier this year, it was reported that WhatsApp beta for Windows Phone came with a nifty feature that sends a notification to all the WhatsApp contacts when a user changes his/her number, making the whole process less cumbersome.
