Whatsapp has announced that they are now going to be letting users share the location with friends and family in real time.
There are a lot of hidden references about group voice calls, but there is only one reference about group video calls.
The website wrote: "Unfortunately there is actually nothing that we can show you as abovementioned, seen that WhatsApp is internally working on it, but when WhatsApp will add something more that will be possible to show, we will immediately publish all screenshots and information".

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.
An exact launch date has not been specified, but some smartphone users with the latest version of WhatsApp will already be able to see the feature on their handsets. But now, WaBetaInfo - a site that tests new WhatsApp features before the official rollout confirms the coming of the new video/voice calling feature very soon. It notes that the users will get the feature in the 2.17.70 beta WhatsApp update. It is also expected that WhatsApp might roll out the Unsend and Delete for everyone feature in its next update. "So group video calls are partially confirmed at the moment", WaBetaInfo tweets. With this one though, you'll be able to share it in real time, nearly like a Google Map of chat.
The latest beta version update has a slew of new features, which include a smaller app size and auto-notification in case of change of number.
"Recall" or "unsend" message feature have been in many social apps like WeChat and Viber. Reports are such that WhatsApp may officially roll out this feature very soon, however, the Facebook-owned messaging platform hasn't revealed any details on the same as of yet.
The service uses Voice Over IP (VOIP) to place calls to your WhatsApp contacts, enabling users to avoid global call rates.
