WhatsApp Introduces Call Links, a More Convenient Way to Connect Calls

For the longest time, we have considered WhatsApp the leading app when it comes to instant messaging apps. This is good because it pressurizes the company to keep up and deliver the best features. Today, we are getting a new feature called "Call Links", to give you a more convenient way of joining or starting a call.

If you are wondering how this works, Call Links feature is going to let users send a link that will start either an audio or a video call. You can even join the calls that are already in progress; and while this is a simple feature, it will make things much more streamlined since users will be able to send links to everyone, including people who are not added in their contacts, and this will allow everyone to join the call without going through the process of first adding contacts.

Even though the feature is announced today by WhatsApp head Will Cathcart, it is going to roll out sometime later this week. Sadly, we do not have a confirmation as to whether the feature is for Android or iOS, or both. At the time of writing, we also do not know when the feature is going to be working.

In addition to that, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has mentioned through Facebook that WhatsApp could actually start testing encrypted video calling with up to 32 users. It is also worth noting that while Call Links will be new to WhatsApp users, such a feature already exists in several other apps and works just as intended or even better.

It should not come as a surprise that lately, WhatsApp has been trying to add new features to the app. We recently got our hands on a feature known as Companion Mode, and there are more features that are in the pipeline. Needless to say, it is an exciting time to be a WhatsApp user.
