Then today another anonymous tipster, who has also been spending a lot of time watching and listening to Laporte's shows, pointed us toward something much more concrete."Download Leo Laporte's the October show in its video version (Laporte typically offers his shows in audio and video, as well as live and for later download).WABeta Info, which has expected the move for some time, spotted a subtle reference to the upcoming features in a recent Whats App blog post.The company announced Live Location tracking last week, demonstrating how it will work, with the aid of three graphics (shown below).Prospective investors and business partners, on the other hand, won't take comfort in the hedonistic pleasures Laporte indulges with the business executive who was supposed to bring discipline and financial growth to his company.Whats App appears to be planning to bring voice and video calls to group chats.
It makes sense that Laporte and his CEO would spend a lot of time together while working to achieve such rapid growth.
However, the image in the middle clearly shows Whats App’s symbols for voice call and video call inside a group chat.
Facebook is also working on a group video chat app called Bonfire, but it’s only available to a small number of users right now.
Or, less scandalously, maybe he's separated from his wife and just gave an embarrassing public debut to his budding office romance.
Or maybe this is all some sort of prank; Laporte does have a blogged that he "apologized abjectly and abundantly" to Kentzell for deciding to leave the chat in the video podcast he distributed after the live recording.
