WhatsApp to let users join group calls after they start
WhatsApp is rolling out a new joinable calls feature that will let users hop onto group calls after they've started, the Facebook-owned company announced. According to The Verge, this new feature means you'll be able to join a call with your friends and family when you're ready, kind of like what you can do with a group Zoom or Google Meet call right now. Given the massive popularity of WhatsApp, this could be a useful feature for many people who communicate over the messaging service. There's also a new call info screen so that users can see who is currently on the call and who is invited but hasn't joined yet. Joinable calls will still be end-to-end encrypted.
