New Delhi: Facebook-owned WhatsApp on Tuesday rolled out its group calling feature, for both voice and video options, on iOS and Android devices for its 1.5 billion users.

The group calling feature supports up to four people simultaneously.

"You can make a group call with up to four people total anytime and anywhere. Just start a one-on-one voice or video call and tap the new "add participant" button in the top right corner to add more contacts to the call," WhatsApp said in a statement.
