WhatsApp adds joinable group calls feature

Tuesday 20 July 2021 | 11:10 CET | News
Facebook-owned WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that allows users to join a group voice or video call after it has begun. Thanks to the joinable calls feature, users can join group calls by simply clicking the 'Calls' tab to bring up a screen with information about who is currently on the call plus invited users who have yet to join. The aim is to bring the spontaneity and ease of in-person conversations to group calling on the app, said WhatsApp in a blog post.
