With Call Links, WhatsApp makes it simple to join voice and video calls.

On the app, WhatsApp is simplifying the process of joining or initiating calls. The business has unveiled a function called Call Links, which pretty much explains itself. It enables you to make a shared link to a voice or video call on WhatsApp. By tapping the link, anyone with a WhatsApp account can start or join the call. You don’t have to keep their phone number in your phone’s contacts. As long as they have a WhatsApp account, you can share the link with them through any channel and they can join the call that way.

When a professional needs to explain anything to several clients, this capability is helpful. They are able to establish a WhatsApp call link and distribute it to their clients. Of course, it has a wide range of other applications. Imagery shared by WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart demonstrates how to build the connection from the Calls tab, which is located in the top navigation row on the far right. Starting this week, the capability ought to be accessible on both iOS and Android apps.

The majority of other videoconferencing tools, including Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams, already permit callers to join via links. These apps offer a wide range of remote collaboration and productivity functions, so they are of course more than just videoconferencing solutions. However, it appears that the platform owned by Meta wants to take some of their share of the videoconferencing business.

The company is testing encrypted video calling for up to 32 individuals on WhatsApp, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement . You can already make group video calls in chat groups with up to 32 people using the well-known messaging software. There can only be eight active users on the video call at once, though. In order for it to develop into a more complete videoconferencing tool, this represents yet another significant step in the right path.

Users of WhatsApp are just now starting to receive the new Call Links functionality. Before everyone has access to the feature, it can take a few days. To check if you have it, go to the aforementioned Calls tab. To receive the functionality early, be sure to keep the app updated.
