WhatsApp Introduces New Feature in Group Call

WhatsApp also created a call info screen so you can see who is already on the call, and who has been invited but not yet joined

WEB DESK: WhatsApp has introduced a feature to join a group call, even after it’s started.

Joinable calls reduce the burden of answering a group call as it starts, and brings the spontaneity and ease of in-person conversations to group calling on WhatsApp, according to an official statement.

As the popularity of group calls continues to grow, we’ve been working to improve the experience for our users – while of course still providing the security and privacy of end-to-end encryption, said a statement.

Some of the best conversations happen when you least expect it. Now, if someone in your group misses a call when the phone rings, they can still join whenever they like. You can also drop-off and re-join so long as the call is still ongoing.

WhatsApp also created a call info screen so you can see who is already on the call, and who has been invited but not yet joined. And, if you hit ‘ignore’ you can join later from the calls tab in WhatsApp.

At a time when so many of us are apart, there’s nothing better than getting together on a group call with friends and family, and there’s nothing worse than realizing that you missed a special moment. Joinable calls are rolling out from today and we hope people can start to make the most of the new experience.
