The feature was introduced to connect spontaneously with the groups, join ongoing calls within the group anytime, directly, and effortlessly from chat view with one click.
WhatsApp has introduced a new feature in which users can join ongoing group video calls, directly through group chats. By integrating its joinable call feature, WhatsApp now lets users join a video call after it has started without making the call maker cut the phone and join the left-out member. The tab will be present on the group chat tab.
The feature was first introduced by WhatsApp in July and now it has been integrated with WhatsApp groups. Moreover, group call notifications will now display the name of the group instead of the names of the participants.
A member no longer needs to call a member to join a chat, the member can join an ongoing call directly from the tab. The ongoing video and voice calls will be seen in the chats so that one can easily spot and join as soon as they open the app.
