WhatsApp is introducing a new button to help you arrange some group fun

It’s hard enough persuading one person to engage with you, let along convince loads of people to all drop their inhibitions at the same time.

But WhatsApp wants to make it easier for you to arrange some group action.

We’re talking, of course, about the ability to talk to lots of your chums at the same time.

In WhatsApp speak, this is known as a group chat or call.

Starting a call with more than one person is currently a bit fiddly because you need to dial the first friend and then add people afterwards.

Now WhatsApp is adding a new button within a group chat which will immediately let you talk with up to three people.

The feature was uncovered by WABetaInfo, which roots through early versions of the app’s software.

It is available for iOS in the current beta version, which means it will probably be rolled out to Android and then to all users in the coming weeks or months.

WABetaInfo wrote: ‘In the older versions, you could start a group call just after a normal call, which was very annoying and required you to start a normal call and after the response of the recipient you needed to add the other contacts in the call.

‘Thanks to these new improvements, you can directly start a real group call easily, choosing between the voice or video mode.’
