WhatsApp will get stickers and group video calls option soon”

While Facebook has confirmed that group video calls are coming to WhatsApp, it hasn't shared any exact timeline for the roll-out of this feature, except saying that users will get it in the "months ahead".

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg quickly commented on Koum's Facebook post about his departure, writing "Jan: I will miss working so closely with you".

"I'm grateful for everything you've done to help connect the world, and for everything you've taught me, including about encryption and its ability to take power from centralized systems and put it back in people's hands", Zuckerberg wrote.

WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum is breaking ties with his company's parent, Facebook, amid a privacy scandal that has dogged the social network for weeks.

Alongside some key announcements related to Facebook and Instagram, the social media giant announced two new massive features which are coming to WhatsApp. So were regulators in Europe, where WhatsApp is most popular. Disagreement is based on Facebook's use of personal data and its attempts to weaken the service use of encryption. Acton left Facebook in November, and has publicly supported the #DeleteFacebook movement since.

When the Ukrainian-born Koum first launched WhatsApp, he promised to respect user privacy.

Koum also the co-founder of WhatsApp in an ironic move took Facebook to declare his resignation to public. That let Facebook target those users with more precise advertising, such as by letting businesses upload lists of phone numbers to hit those people with promotions.
