Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature which will allow users to schedule calls within their group chats. Users will be able to select a title, date and time for their call, making sure that everyone in the group is aware of when it will take place, reports WABetaInfo.

Recently, WhatsApp has introduced a few features for Status. The new ‘Voice Status’ feature allows users to record and share voice messages for up to 30 seconds on WhatsApp status. The newly introduced ‘Status Reactions’ feature allows users to give a quick and easy way to respond to status updates from their friends and close contacts.
The company also introduced other features including ‘Private Audience Selector’, ‘Status Profile Rings for New Updates’ and ‘Link Previews on Status’.
Meanwhile, last week, it was reported that the messaging platform was working on a new feature which will allow users to create calling shortcuts.
With the new feature, it will be possible to create a calling shortcut by just tapping the contact cell within the list of contacts. This feature will be helpful for users who frequently make calls to the same person and do not want to go through the same process again and again, that is, opening the application and searching for the contact every time.
Users might soon be able to pin messages in group chats and individual chats.
