The next version of WhatsApp will get a new call Link feature, which makes it easier to start and participate in a (video) call with one click.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg just announced this personally via a Facebook message.
A Call Link is what the name itself says: a link for an audio or video call that you can easily share with friends, family or colleagues.
They can then join the conversation with one click. The new feature will be available in WhatsApp later this week and is hidden behind the Calls tab.
WhatsApp also started testing group video calls for up to 32 people this week. However, it is not yet known when that feature will be available to everyone.
