WhatsApp users will soon be able to join a call by tapping a link

It will soon be easier for WhatsApp users to invite other people to a call. Meta introduces the option to share call links. When you see one of these links, you can join a call with a single tap. You need the latest version of WhatsApp to use call links. From the app’s “Calls” tab, you can select the “Call links” option. You can then generate a voice or video call link to share with family and friends.

It’s a handy feature that we’ve already seen from Apple. Last year, the company began offering shareable FaceTime links that let others join calls from Android devices and Windows PCs. While Apple will allow people to schedule calls in advance via links, WhatsApp will not offer a similar feature, a spokesperson confirmed to Engadget.

Additionally, WhatsApp has begun testing encrypted group video calls for up to 32 people, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said. The company will be announcing more details on this front shortly.

update 26.9. 11:53 am ET: Added clarification that WhatsApp does not allow users to schedule calls.
