How Does the WhatsApp group Call feature work?
To begin a WhatsApp group voice call, you must be a participant in a group chat with 33 or more users. If the group has fewer than 33 members, open the group chat and select the voice call choice. During the call, the initial 7 people who respond will join initially, and then the rest can be added.
If a group chat has 33 or more people, select group call. Meanwhile, WhatsApp’s latest iOS update includes an enhanced version for voice message bubbles as well as detailed displays for friends and groups. In the gallery, there’s also a significant tweak for viewing media saved to preferences.
Other New Features:
Meanwhile, WABetainfo revealed that WhatsApp is testing a new feature that allows users to edit users and choose the audience before transmitting media with a new caption view. The functionality has also been introduced to the WhatsApp Status choice. Moreover, it is now available to beta testers using v188.8.131.52. However, not all beta testers will see the choice.
According to WABetaInfo, while transferring media from a chat or submitting a status, users cannot pick different receivers in the standard version. This is only feasible when utilizing WhatsApp’s camera tab layout. However, while sending a photo, clip, or GIF, people will now be able to select the recipients. For status uploads, the recipient choices are My contacts, My contacts exclude, and Only Share with. This means that users will have more choice over who views their WhatsApp Uploads/Status.
