Instant messaging app, WhatsApp, is known for encrypted text messaging, with the company announcing its intention to offer group voice and video calling in May.

WhatsApp has today confirmed multi-person video calling is now available worldwide, both on iOS and Android.

Like its texting service, WhatsApp asserts calls are also end-to-end encrypted.

The feature has reportedly been designed to work on poor networks, and is aimed at connecting friends, families and colleagues across international borders.

The company currently boasts around 1.5 billion monthly active users, and is set to directly take on Facebook’s FaceTime feature.

As previously reported, Facebook purchased WhatsApp in 2014 for around US$16 billion deal.
