WhatsApp rolling out group calling features, stickers soon

New Delhi: WhatsApp users should get ready for some good news in the months to come as Facebook said it will bring group calling to the popular mobile messaging platform.

Delivering the keynote address on the inaugural day of the two-day F8 developers' conference in San Jose on Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised new services that bring people together in meaningful new ways across Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger and Oculus.

“Voice and video calling are very popular on WhatsApp, and we’re excited to share that group calling will be coming in the months ahead. Stickers are also coming to WhatsApp soon,” Facebook wrote in a blog.

Zuckerberg made several announcements during the event and among the biggest announcements made on the first day of the conference was Facebook's plans to build a "Clear History" privacy tool which will enable users to see the websites and apps that send information to Facebook when they use them.

The tool, Facebook said, will also enable the users to delete this information from their account, and turn off Facebook's ability to store it.
