WhatsApp users will soon be able to invite others to join a call more easily. Meta is introducing the ability to share Call Links. You can join a call with a single tap if you see one of these links.
To use Call Links, you must have the most recent version of WhatsApp. Select the Call Links option from the app’s Calls tab. You can then create a link to share with family and friends for a voice or video call.
It’s a useful feature that Apple has already adopted. The company began offering sharable FaceTime links last year, allowing others to join calls from Android devices and Windows PCs.
While Apple allows users to schedule calls in advance using links, a WhatsApp spokesperson confirmed that a similar feature will not be available.
In addition, WhatsApp has started testing encrypted group video calls for up to 32 people, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said. The company will share more details on that front soon.
