Whatsapp is about to test out a cool new update on a few selected users. The messaging app is finally going to let people conduct group video chats, which means they will be able to talk to more than one person at once. However, there’s a major catch. It’s believed the update will not be rolled out immediately and its release will be staggered, meaning you may have to wait a while to get it unless you’re one of a few people who’ve been chosen to test it.
