WhatsApp is inspired by Zoom and Meet so you never miss a group call again

    A new feature is coming to WhatsApp: the ability to join a group call after it has started. A way for users to no longer miss audio or video exchanges between friends and with family.

    With such great popularity, WhatsApp must evolve and regularly offer new features. Recently, the application acquired by Facebook in February 2014 focused on the quality of photos and videos sent to its platform, offering more leeway to its users.

    Also and above all, the long-awaited multi-device mode has been deployed in beta, pending a stable grind expected in the coming months. This time around, the service focused its efforts on group calls made in audio and video. It is now possible to join such an exchange without having to be present from the start.

    A less “punitive” system

    Because until today, it was necessary to answer the call at “time T” to participate in a conversation with several. If you missed the mark, then it was too late. WhatsApp therefore makes group calls less “punitive” by giving you the opportunity to participate even after starting a conversation with your friends or family.

    To do this, the interface gets a little bit of a facelift and welcomes a phone and camera icon when a group chat takes place in audio and video, respectively. Then just click on it to join the party. You can also see who is invited to the call, and who has not yet joined.

    A little delay caught up

    WhatsApp recalls that you cannot remove a contact from a group video call during the call in question, and of course ensures that it has emphasized “end-to-end encryption security and privacy».

    Deployed since Monday, July 19, 2021, this new feature fills a small delay vis-à-vis Google Meet or Zoom (but also Messenger), which have been offering this type of solution for some time. It is clear that the competition between the different services pushes them to improve their functioning. To the delight of users.
