Group video calling is now available on one of the world's most popular messaging services.
Announced [back in early May](https://alternativeto.net/news/2018/5/facebook-announces-dating-app-features-and-more-at-its-f8-conference), popular messenger WhatsApp has launched support for group video calling of up to four people simultaneously.
In order to use the group video calling functionality, users should start a one-on-one video call and then tap the newly implemented "add participant" button in the upper right corner of their screen.
The WhatsApp [blog post announcing the availability of the feature](https://blog.whatsapp.com/10000646/Group-Calling-for-Voice-and-Video-Is-Here) states that these group calls will always be encrypted end-to-end (similar to its https://alternativeto.net/software/signal-private-messenger/ and https://alternativeto.net/software/telegram/ contemporaries), and that the call functionality is designed to "work reliably around the world in different network conditions."
The feature is now available on https://alternativeto.net/software/whatsapp/ for https://alternativeto.net/software/android/ and https://alternativeto.net/software/ios/.
