WhatsApp Rolls Out Joinable Calls, Allowing Users To Hop On And Off Ongoing Calls Like Zoom and Google Meet

WhatsApp users can use the new Joinable calls feature to attend a group call even if they missed the initial ring, while leaving and joining the call just like Google Meet, Zoom and Microsoft Teams

WhatsApp is one of the most widely used encrypted messaging services in the world, with over 2.5 billion users. The Facebook-owned organization has been working away at a few features to further develop usefulness, especially at a time when many are studying or working from home, making it difficult to connect with their loved ones. One of these features is called Joinable calls, and the company has announced that it is rolling out to users.

We have recently reported the presence of this feature on the beta version of WhatsApp for Android and iOS, which was spotted by noted feature leaker WABetaInfo. The new feature will allow users to join an ongoing group call on WhatsApp after they missed the initial ring when the call began. WhatsApp finally confirmed that the feature was arriving for all users on its blog.

What are Joinable calls?

Named ‘Joinable calls’, the new feature allows users to rapidly join a continuous group call at whatever point they like, as long as different peoples are as yet on the call. Users will actually want to see who is available with the new call data screen, alongside other people who were welcomed yet haven’t joined at this point.

How do Joinable calls function?

The new Joinable calls feature makes group calls on WhatsApp sounds like Google Meet, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams, thanks to the ability for users to drop off calls and rejoin them at any time, as long as the call is still ongoing. They can do as such by visiting the call area on WhatsApp, which will list dynamic group calls they are welcome to, which they can join. This will come as a help for some users who don’t need to join a call when the phone begins ringing, particularly with regards to unconstrained or unexpected group calls.
