WhatsApp Spotted Testing New Interface for Voice Calls on Android, iOS

WhatsApp’s new voice-calling interface appears to be more compact and modern.

WhatsApp has been spotted developing another interface for voice calls. The interface is said to be a part of both Android and iOS versions of the instant messaging app. WhatsApp might have the option to convey a further developed encounter for both individual and group voice calls through the new interface. However, the changes are not yet available for access — even to beta testers. This means that users may need to wait for some time to get the updated voice call interface.

According to a report by WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has been developing the new point of interaction for voice calls to provide users with a compact and modern experience. The source has also shared two or three screen captures to give an examination of how the updated connection point is not quite the same as the current one.

The screenshots have been taken from WhatsApp for iOS, however, WABetaInfo says that the equivalent upgrade would be a piece of the WhatsApp for Android also.

Details regarding when the updated interface will be available to users are yet to be revealed. As mentioned, the changes have not been made available to beta testers yet.

WhatsApp’s redesigned voice-calling interface has been spotted only months later it presented joinable group calls. The messaging application recently integrated its joinable calls feature in group chats to let users join ongoing voice or video calls directly from their groups.

WhatsApp was also recently spotted developing indicators for end-to-end encryption for calls and notices. Also, beta testers on WhatsApp Business recently received a shortcut for quick replies.

Alongside the features in testing, WhatsApp last week updated the voice message experience by rolling out a feature to allow users to review their voice messages prior to sending them.
