Last month, Apple revealed they aren’t releasing FaceTime group calls when iOS 12 launches.

Mashable reports that users who downloaded the iOS 12 beta 7 received a message saying the software update won’t include the feature anymore.

According to the note, group FaceTime calls will be available some time later this fall.

Earlier this summer, Apple announced the launch of group chats in the iOS 12 update that can include up to 32 participants

When the update launches, FaceTime will also be integrated with Messages app. The change will make it easier to move the conversation from texts to calls.
