WhatsApp carries on its beta testing with yet another feature. Previously we covered “WhatsApp To Redesign Its Notifications On iOS” via the 2.21.140.9 beta update (Click Here to know more). In latest updates it has been confirmed that WhatsApp is bringing improvements for calls. WhatsApp has officially released the 2.21.140.11 beta update on TestFlight which includes some important improvements for voice and video calls. It is also rolling out a new UI (user interface) feature called Joinable Calls.

Under this new UI when you call another WhatsApp user. WhatsApp will allow you to quickly find the option you’re looking for, and it has also included a Ring button too.

The second improvement is perhaps the most important one. It is about the possibility to join group calls. WhatsApp will now let people join a group call even after it has started.

According to WABetaInfo: “When can you join group calls? If you temporarily ignore to participate in a group call, and you open WhatsApp again after some time, if the group call is still ongoing, WhatsApp might present you an alert if you want to quickly join the call, without asking other participants to add you again. When there is a call you can join, you can find a “Tap to join” banner in the Calls tab and a “Join call” button in the group chat where the call is started.

Currently improvements are available on the iOS beta version of WhatsApp but WhatsApp is soon going to roll out these features on the Android WhatsApp beta version too.
