WhatsApp has rolled out a shareable call link feature that will allow people to easily join a call just by clicking a link. The feature will be added to the calls tabs where users can easily create a link for an audio or video call that can be shared across platforms. Mark Zuckerberg announced the feature saying; “We’re rolling out call links on WhatsApp starting this week so you can share a link to start a call with a single tap.”
Shareable Call Links
Mark mentioned that the shareable call links feature will be rolling out this week for worldwide users. So, it is advised to all Whatsapp users to keep an eye on app updates to enjoy the feature. The instant messaging app said that the link expires after 90 days of inactivity. Moreover, if the user sends the call link to someone who doesn’t use WhatsApp, they will be automatically redirected to download the app.
Meta is continuously working to improve its services as the company is under constant pressure from its rivals. In July, WhatsApp rolled out a similar feature for Whatsapp calls where the users can join a group video or voice call even after it has started, the feature has reduced the burden of answering a group call as it starts, hence bringing the ease of in-person conversations.
WhatsApp Starts Testing Group Video Call Support for 32 People
The CEO of Meta has also announced that they are testing another feature that will let users add upto 32 people in a group video call. “We are also testing secure encrypted video calling for up to 32 people. More coming soon,” said Mark Zuckerberg in a social media post. It is pertinent to mention here that WhatsApp already allows users to add up to 32 users in its group voice calls.
