New Delhi: WhatsApp is rolling out a new joinable calls feature which will let users hop onto group calls after they’ve started, the Facebook-owned company announced Monday.

According to The Verge, this new feature means you’ll be able to join a call with your friends and family when you’re ready, kind of like what you can do with a group Zoom or Google Meet call right now. Given the massive popularity of WhatsApp, this could be a useful feature for many people who communicate over the messaging service.

Before the new update, users who would miss a call notification would have to ask the caller to add them again. While this method made it possible for someone to join the call later, it was very inconvenient.

There’s also a new call info screen so that users can see who is currently on the call and who is invited but hasn’t joined yet. Joinable calls will still be end-to-end encrypted. As per The Verge, this new joinable calls feature starts rolling out on Monday.

Here is how you can use Joinable group calls:

If someone adds to a group call, you will get a notification from the app.

If you don’t want to join the call at that moment, you can tap the “Ignore” button. And if you want to join, just open the call info screen, tap Join.

Now, you can check how many participants are there on the call or people who are yet to join the call

To join the call later, you can find the option in your chat window

While on the call, tap Open to open the call info screen. You can add more people to the call by tapping on Add Participant option.

Similarly, you can Tap RING to send a notification to people who’ve already been invited.
