The website says that the feature is currently being tested internally for WhatsApp version 2.12.16.2 for iOS and the build is for developers and beta testers. Officially, there has been no word from WhatsApp on the speculated feature but is expected to arrive sometime next year.

In addition, the instant messaging platform also is planning a multi-tab user interface that will allow users to jump from one chat to another without going back to the main chat list.

If these features actually come, WhatsApp might deliver them in a phased manner as it did with voice calling in March this year. Android users were the first to get voice calling, followed by iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phones.
