Call Links, a new feature that will allow users to initiate a new call or join an ongoing call, has been announced on Facebook. WhatsApp has also announced that it will begin testing group video calls for up to 32 participants on the messaging app.
In a post on Facebook, Zuckerberg revealed that WhatsApp is now developing a Call Links feature that allows users to create a link and share it with friends and family on the instant messaging app. They may click the link and join the call in just one tap, just like links for Google Meet or Microsoft Teams calls across platforms.
The Meta-owned corporation explicitly did not mention which platforms will support the feature, but the mention of the Calls tab suggests that it will be available on at least Android and iOS.
Users may tap the Calls tab''s Create call links option and create a link for an audio or video call and share it with their friends and relatives. This week, the release will be called, and you must have the latest software to make a link.
Amidst the turmoil, the company has announced that it has begun testing group video calls for up to 32 participants on WhatsApp. Details of the feature will be shared shortly.
It is to be noted that WhatsApp has already facilitated the addition of up to 32 participants to group voice calls. The feature is available on both Android and iOS. Video calls with the help of up to 32 participants will be a step on its strategy to expand into the upcoming WhatsApp Communities feature, which is still in use.
