WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature that will allow users around the world to join a group call even if they might have missed the initial call.
Users can also hang up a call and rejoin group calls, as long as the call is still ongoing.
“We’re introducing the ability 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 a group calling on WhatsApp,” the company said in a post.
The Facebook-owned app has also created a call info screen allowing users to view who is already on a call, and they can also view those who have been invited but not yet joined the group call.
How to join an ongoing Whatsapp Call
- Open WhatsApp
- Tap the ‘CALLS’ tab.
- If the call is ongoing, tap the call you would like to join.
- From the call menu, you can tap ’Join’ to be part of the group call.
