WhatsApp now allow users to join missed group calls

WhatsApp recently rolled out a helpful feature that can let people join a missed group calls. So a person who has missed a group call would not get a missed call notification. Instead, they would get an option to join the group call. The feature was announced on Monday and shaped the WhatsApp calls more like Zoom or Google Meet calls. People can quickly leave and join video calls rather than the host having to add the one person who missed it; this feature makes WhatsApp calls more accessible and reduces the stress of picking up group calls immediately.

WhatsApp also stated that now it will be easier for people to leave and join calls and increase the use of WhatsApp group calls, as the hassle of hosting will be reduced a lot. And now the feature will function more like a private room, that people can enter and leave if they are given access to it.

How does the join missed group calls work in WhatsApp?

Suppose you miss a group call that was hosted by one of your friends, family, or colleagues. You can now access the calls section to see the ongoing/active call and then join it by clicking on a ‘Tap to Join’ option whenever you prefer. Previously if people missed a call, they had to text the host or a participant to add them back in rather than them being able to join the call solely. If a person is busy when the call is being hosted, they can click on the Ignore option to ignore the call then and join it later, when they can.

With this feature, WhatsApp has also introduced a new call info screen to make it easier to navigate and check who all are on call and who are left to join the call. Users can now also add new participants into the call, and that participant can join the call whenever they want while the call is active. This feature refines how WhatsApp calls have been working since the launch of WhatsApp calls and makes them more elaborate & accessible.

With this feature, WhatsApp has entirely removed the inconvenience caused if someone misses a group call and has upgraded the WhatsApp call function to something which can now be on par with video-conferencing apps like Zoom and Google Meet. And as both Zoom and Google Meet have set time limits for free users on their platform, WhatsApp, on the other hand, allows unlimited calls, giving it an upper edge over the competition.

There is no set date when this will be available to the users exactly, but as the update is already there for Beta testers on iOS and Android, it should start rolling out for everyone soon.
