As WhatsApp works to catch up with rival apps like Telegram and Google Meet the latest addition is the ability to schedule calls in group chats similar to Zoom and Google Meet.
It was first spotted on WhatsApp beta for Android and is now available on WhatsApp beta for iOS version 126.96.36.199 on the Test Flight app according to WABetaInfo.
It will then appear in a context menu, where users can choose a time and name for the group call. Once the call has been scheduled, all members of the group will receive a notification making it easy for them to join. It’s important to note that the scheduling feature works both for audio and video calls and is dependent on which call button users use to open the context menu.
As it allows group members to plan their schedules in advance, this feature is likely to be a game-changer for group meetings and events. In addition, it reduces the likelihood of missed or delayed calls by ensuring that everyone is aware of the scheduled time, so they may prepare accordingly.
Due to the fact that this feature is already under beta testing, it is expected to appear on the stable version of WhatsApp for Android and iOS soon.
A number of new features have been added to WhatsApp in recent years, including this latest addition. By adding new features and improving its user experience WhatsApp has been able to keep up with its competitors as the world becomes increasingly reliant on messaging apps.
