WhatsApp is announcing through a blog post that a lot of improvements for WhatsApp calling were made available this year and the team is going to keep making improvements in terms of quality and privacy over time. If you use an updated version of WhatsApp for Android and iOS, you can take advantage of several features when placing a call:
- 32-person calls: up to 32 people can join private group calls protected by end-to-end encryption. This feature was announced by Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook last month.
- Message or mute participants in a call: you can quickly message and mute call participants in case they forget to mute themselves. We announced these features available for WhatsApp for iOS and Android in June.
- Call links: you can share an invite link so people can quickly join your call on WhatsApp, and they are still protected by end-to-end encryption. This feature was announced after releasing the WhatsApp for iOS 22.21.77 update.
- Voice waveforms: you can understand who is speaking when their camera is off by looking at voice waveforms.
- In-call banner notifications: you’re notified when someone joins the group call in real-time thanks to an in-app banner.
- Picture in Picture on iOS: we announced this feature after the release of the WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 update and it will be rolled out to users on the latest stable release next year.
Several improvements for WhatsApp calls were released to users on WhatsApp for Android and iOS this year. Note that some features are also available on the desktop client, and more improvements are planned to be released over the coming months.
