On Monday, WhatsApp made a big announcement about the Call Links. Call Links is a new feature of Whatsapp which is designed to permit its users to initiate a new call or join an ongoing call. A ‘Call Links’ option is going to be included in the Calls tab, and users will have the freedom to create a link for an audio or video call, which can easily be shared on any other platform. The Meta-owned messaging service has mentioned that the feature will roll out later this week. The users must ensure that they are running the latest version of the application. Meanwhile, WhatsApp has said that it will soon begin testing group video calls for up to 32 participants on the messaging app.
As per the post which is posted on the social media platform Facebook, Zuckerberg has mentioned that WhatsApp is rolling out the Call Links feature that allows users to create a link and share it with friends and family on the instant-messaging app. With the help of this feature, the users can click the link and join a call with just one tap. It would be just like links for Google Meet or Microsoft Teams calls across platforms.
While the Meta-owned company explicitly did not disclose which platforms would support this feature. As per the mention of the Calls tab, it is estimated that it will be available on at least Android and iOS.
In order to create a link to a call, users can tap the Create call links option within the Calls Tab and create a link for an audio or video call and can directly share it with family and friends. It is notable that the introduction will begin this week, and you must have the latest version of the application to make a link.
Meanwhile, the company has begun testing group video calls for up to 32 participants on WhatsApp. Soon it is going to share the details of the same.
WhatsApp has already let its users include up to 32 participants to group voice calls. The launch is supported by both Android and iOS devices. This introduction will be a step on its roadmap to expansion into the upcoming WhatsApp Communities feature, which is still in the developmental stage.
