Previously, WhatsApp was reported to be working on the ability to make group video calls and the same could be released in the next year. Facebook has a similar feature for groups in Messenger. As per the tweet, WhatsApp 2.17.70 sends a request to the server in order to ask if the user you are calling is busy in another group call.

This feature would be a boon to many users who are awaiting an option for group calls to be launched on the popular messaging service WhatsApp. As mentioned above, the references for the same have been spotted on the iOS app and we are yet to know when the Android users will receive the ability or when the stable version of WhatsApp with the group calling feature will be rolled out to the users.
