And this time we can witness a new featured that has been rolled out by the messaging company called “Joinable Calls” which was earlier appeared on the beta versions of Android and iOS devices. Earlier, users could not join a group call if they have missed the ring, but now this feature allows users to join an ongoing group call on WhatsApp if they have missed the initial ring when the call began.
What are Joinable Calls?
‘Joining Calls’ is a new feature that has been introduced by the Facebook-owned company WhatsApp for its users which allows them to quickly join an ongoing group call whenever they like, as long as the call is still going. This feature also gives the advantage to monitor who is present with the new call info screen, along with others who were invited but haven’t joined yet.
How Do Joinable Calls Work?
This new feature has made the life of users easier as they have got the ability to drop off calls and re-join them whenever they want, as long as the call is still active. The ‘Joinable Calls’ feature of WhatsApp sounds like Google Meet, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams as they also run on the same functionality in terms of making a group call.
The users can join an ongoing call by visiting the call section on WhatsApp, which will list all the active group calls they are invited to, and easily join them. Like this, users are relieved from picking up the calls immediately as many users used to panic sometimes so that they do not miss their call.
As the company has mentioned earlier that it has created a call info screen where the users can see who is already on the call, and who has been invited but hasn’t joined yet. The user also has an option to hit ‘Ignore’ if cannot attend the call at that moment and can later join from the calls tab in WhatsApp.

- Users can also view the invited members and call participants from the call menu.
