WhatsApp has released a new 22.214.171.124 beta update, which adds a new user interface for calls as well as a new feature for group calls. Apple iOS beta users will now see a new user interface when they place or receive a call on the messaging app.
As per the screenshots shared by WaBetaInfo, the new interface looks quite similar to the one seen on Apple’s Facetime app. The new interface now makes it easier for users to quickly find the options that a user may be looking for during a call. There is also a Ring button at the bottom of the screen. The latest WhatsApp beta version also allows you to join group calls that you might have missed.
So, if someone invites a user to join a group call, and they aren’t able to join in at that moment, they will be able to join the next time you open WhatsApp, if the call hasn’t ended. When one open the call sections in the messaging app, they will see a “Tap to join” label below an ongoing video call.
Currently, the new feature is only available for iOS beta users and it will soon be made available for Android beta testers too. This is a much-needed feature, which a lot of users will appreciate as there are times when you are not able to receive a call and when you are available, you can’t join.
If you haven’t received this feature yet, then you should get it in the coming days. “WhatsApp is rolling out these features today, be patient to see them enabled for your WhatsApp account,” WaBetaInfo said.
