WhatsApp Enhances Calling Interface
The Meta-owned instant messaging platform, WhatsApp, is making significant improvements to its calling interface. These enhancements aim to provide users with more information and simplify the process of managing calls. With the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 update, available on the TestFlight app, WhatsApp is introducing these changes.
What’s New in the Calling Interface?
The revamped calling interface now offers several notable features:
|Call Type Information
|The interface displays the type of call and emphasizes that it is securely encrypted end-to-end.
|Add Participant Button
|WhatsApp has added an “add participant” button to the interface, making it more visible and accessible during calls.
|Improved Contact Adding
|Adding contacts to your call has been made more straightforward, enhancing the overall user experience.
“WhatsApp aims to better highlight the option to quickly add new participants to the call without any interruption for the current call.”
These changes are particularly beneficial when you’re engaged in a one-on-one call and wish to convert it into a group call without interrupting the ongoing conversation. In the past, some users inadvertently initiated new group calls because they weren’t aware of the option to add more participants. Making this feature more visible will streamline the process and save users valuable time.
Who Can Access the New Calling Interface?
The enhanced calling interface is currently available to select beta testers who have installed the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS via the TestFlight app. However, WhatsApp plans to roll out these improvements to a broader user base in the near future.
These updates signify WhatsApp’s commitment to continuously improving its platform and enhancing the user experience when it comes to making and managing calls.
Stay tuned for these changes, and make sure to update your WhatsApp app to access these valuable improvements in the calling interface.
