WhatsApp Call Links Feature
Inviting a video call through a link is common in apps like Teams, Zoom, or Google Meet. But now the World’s most popular messaging app WhatsApp is also rolling out this feature so that users can share a link of a call with family members, friends, and whoever is in the WhatsApp contact list. With over a billion users accessing across the globe, this feature could help WhatsApp calling become simpler to start a video call conversation.
Meta’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg today announced this feature that users can now join WhatsApp calls through this link with a single tap. He also tell that the Whatsapp company is testing 32-person encrypted video calls. In April 2022, they announced the extended group call feature but now it will be rolling it out for a limited number of users.
In a recent product announcement meeting, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg noted that: “Most people use feeds to discover content and use messaging for deeper connections.”
How To Create Video Call Link on WhatsApp
Users can create a WhatsApp video call link under the calls tab. Once the link is created, users can share these dedicated URL links for WhatsApp group video and audio chats.
The call links feature is rolling out this week to all users but there is no confirmation whether it is for android or ios users or for both. So if you need this call link option, you should have an updated version of Whatsapp. This audio & video chat link expires after 90 days of inactivity. If you send it to someone who doesn’t use WhatsApp, they will be redirected to download the app.
Users also expect the Call Link feature to be available on the Whatsapp desktop web version.
