WhatsApp usually works on numerous interesting features and this time the messaging app will roll out features like a ringtone for group calls, new sticker animation for calls with its latest Android beta update.

According to the latest reports, WhatsApp has currently released the new features for testing. Apart from this, the messaging app is also working on advanced search mode and multi-device features.

As per WAbteainfo, a couple of new features have been rolled out for Android beta testers and in order to access the features, the users will have to update their WhatsApp to the 2.20.198.11 version on Play Store.

The WhatsApp features tracker reports that WhatsApp is working on implementing a new ringtone for group calls. So every time you receive a group call, WhatsApp will play a new ringtone on loop.

Currently, when you receive a call, the ringtone of your phone plays but now WhatsApp is working on a separate ringtone.

Apart from this, WhatsApp is also working on improving sticker animation. When the animated stickers were launched for both Android and iOS users, they were not happy with the stickers “one-time-play” rule.

In order to play the sticker, again and again, users will have to scroll up and down. However, WhatsApp is trying to make the stickers work better now.

“WhatsApp has implemented a new type of animation for animated stickers, looping them at most 8 times. Long animated stickers will loop fewer times. With the 2.20.198.11 update, the feature should be available for everyone now,” Wabetainfo read.

Moreover, WhatsApp is also redesigning the user interface for calls.

However, Wabetainfo states that all the features are currently under development and it could be rolled out only after WhatsApp is done testing and improving them.
