New WhatsApp features let you never miss a group call again
WhatsApp is rolling out a feature where you can join a group call after it starts. This means that you can never miss one in the future.
WhatsApp is rolling out a feature that lets you join a group call after it’s started
The problem was simple: If someone started a group video or audio call and you missed the initial notification, there was no way to join them later. Whatsapp has ad that it solves all this and that you can now join a call after he was initiated.
Today we are introducing the ability to join a group call even after it is launched. Reachable calls reduce the burden of answering a group call as soon as it starts and bring the spontaneity and ease of in-person conversations to group calls on WhatsApp.
Besides the most obvious thing this feature does, you will be able to see who is in the group call before you join. WhatsApp goes one step further and will allow you to drop out of a call and join later too if you want.
And yes, those calls will be end-to-end encrypted, which means your privacy and security aren’t sacrificed.
The feature is being rolled out for iPhone and Android users around the world. Expect it to happen to you without any notice. This is the magic of technology.
This isn’t the only news you should be concerned about. Yesterday we learned that the latest beta of WhatsApp lets you share images and photos with others with less compression applied. Other than that, support for multiple devices is already on the cards, which is nothing more than a great feature to look forward to.
