WhatsApp rolls out ringtone for group calls and other features for Android beta testers


WhatsApp has been working on a number of features. The messaging platform is also working on a number of interesting features and this includes ringtones for group calls, as well as new sticker animation and UI improvements for calls with its latest Android beta update. 

According to reports, WhatsApp has also released the new features for testing. Also, the messaging apps is working on advanced search mode and multi-device features. 

As per WAbteainfo, there have been a couple of new features which have been rolled out for Android beta testers and in order to access the features, the users will also have to update their WhatsApp to the version on Play Store. 

The WhatsApp features tracker also says that WhatsApp has been working on implementing a new ringtone for group calls. Hence, every time you receive a group call, WhatsApp will play a new ringtone on loop. Now, when you receive a call, the ringtone of your phone plays but now WhatsApp is also working on a separate ringtone.

“WhatsApp has implemented a new type of animation for animated stickers, looping them at most 8 times. Long animated stickers (so animated stickers having a lot of frames) will loop less times. With the update, the feature should be available for everyone now,” Wabetainfo read.

Apart from this, WhatsApp has also plans to redesign the user interface for calls. In the screenshot shared by the WhatsApp features tracker, it can also be seen that the messaging app has moved all the icons including the camera reverse icon, the message icon, the video off and audio off icon and the information icon which is in the bottom of the call page. 

Wabetainfo has also said that all the features will be under development and hence, they could be rolled out only after WhatsApp is done testing and improving them.
