WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that allows users to join a missed group video or voice call. Users will also be able to rejoin the call using this functionality if the call drops while it is still in progress. Only one participant could add another person to a video/voice call till now.
Users will also be able to view who is currently on the call, as well as who has been invited but has yet to join. “If you hit ‘ignore,’ you can join later from the calls tab in WhatsApp,” the company said.
Users can even rejoin a call if it is still in progress.
How to join a missed WhatsApp video/voice call
Step 1: Go to the “Calls” tab in WhatsApp.
Step 2: If the call is still in progress, tap it to see all of the call data.
Step 3: Select “Join call” from the drop-down menu.
Only eight individuals can join a video call at a time, and you can’t delete someone from an existing call, according to WhatsApp.
This feature is now available to all Android and iOS users, according to the company.
According to a statement released by WhatsApp, “We’re introducing the option to join a group call after it’s already started today. Joinable calls eliminate the need to answer a group call as soon as it begins, bringing the spontaneity and ease of in-person talks to WhatsApp group calling.”
