Whatsapp Wants to Allow Users to Create Video Call Links

1 min read

Now, users of WhatsApp can click a link to join calls the same way as they can on Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or FaceTime. The tech giant hasn’t said if this will be for both Android and iOS users.

Call Links is a brand-new feature that WhatsApp is launching. Users can create and exchange links for scheduled WhatsApp video calls, as the name would imply.
Users could only join already-running video chats or start new video calls from pre-made groups up until now.

Call Links on Whatsapp

The new functionality makes it simple for anyone to join a WhatsApp video call by simply accessing the shared link, just like Telegram.

Even those not on your contact list can receive a WhatsApp Video Call Link.
Users of WhatsApp will be able to include the URL in an invitation or send it over a chat.

The Call Links function will be available on the platform starting this week, according to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who made the announcement on Facebook. The business is also exploring safe, encrypted video calling for up to 32 people, he continued.

Keep an eye out for an update to your app in the coming days if you’re eager to use WhatsApp’s new Video Call Link function.

Although the security measures for these shared video call URLs are unknown, we anticipate WhatsApp will disclose them once the service is operational.

Not too long ago, Whatsapp started allowing admins to delete messages from people on group chats. Have you noticed that feature yet?
