WhatsApp group calls: Instant messaging platform WhatsApp has begun rolling out the feature to make group calls joinable. Yes, it is going to be a thing like Zoom but not precisely. Currently, if a user misses a group video contact, there is no way for them to join in the middle of the contact. And if they will need to be a component of the group contact, the other members active for the duration of the contact will need to contact them and add them in. However, that is about to modify. Now, immediately after the rollout of this feature, if a user have been to miss a group video contact on WhatsApp, they would get the selection to join the contact with an simple selection with out needing one of the members to contact them once more.

This selection would be accessible as extended as the original contact is ongoing. The feature would also let customers drop off and rejoin the group video contact on WhatsApp though the conversation is ongoing.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also posted about the launch applying his official Facebook account.
In case a user misses a group contact, they would get the selection saying ‘Tap to join’ in the contact log against the missed contact if the group contact is ongoing, and a user would just will need to click this to drop into the contact.
Moreover, a new contact screen information has also been added by Facebook, which would let the user know about the specifics of the missed contact – like the participants who are in the group contact, and these who have been invited into the group contact but have not but joined. On this screen, the user would have the selection to join the contact or ignore. In case a user chooses to ignore the contact initially, they would be capable to join later at any time for the duration of the contact via the contact log.
While it is not but identified precisely when the devices would get the update, Zuckerberg mentioned that the feature is becoming rolled out, which suggests that iOS and Android customers would be capable to get the feature quickly.
