While browsing images or when you will select an image for group chat, the application will recognize the faces that are present in the image and will search your phonebook to retrieve their contact information and will perform a group call or group chat.

While performing group call the images of the contacts will be displayed in background. The app also indicates visually that who is currently speaking during a group call. It highlights the face of the current speaker. This is great feature of the app that will avoid confusion about who is currently speaking. Especially in corporate client calls where you don’t recognize the voices of speakers.
