- WhatsApp is rolling out a new calling links feature.
- It will allow users to create and share links to WhatsApp video calls.
- The feature will roll out to WhatsApp users in the coming weeks.
It’s WhatsApp debuted a new feature called Call Links. As the name suggests, it allows users to create and share links for pre-arranged WhatsApp video calls.
Until now, users could only add their contacts to ongoing video calls or start video calls from pre-made groups.
The new feature makes it easy for anyone to join a WhatsApp video call with easy access to a shared link. You can even share the WhatsApp call link with someone who is not in your contact list.
WhatsApp users i will be able to add a link to an invitation or send it in a chat.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Facebook that the Call Links feature will be coming to the platform starting this week. He added that the company is also testing secure, encrypted video calls for up to 32 people.
If you’re looking forward to the new WhatsApp Call Link feature, you’ll need to keep checking for an update to your app in the coming days.
It’s unclear what protections are in place for these shared video call connections, but we’re guessing WhatsApp will share those details once the feature goes live.
