Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, the owner of WhatsApp, has announced the new feature of WhatsApp from his official Facebook page. Through this update, users can leave the group call midway and rejoin it if they want. However, this requires the continuation of the call. If the group call is over, you will not be able to join. Till now there was no facility to attend group calls in between. The new feature will work on both voice and video calls.

Step 2: Users will see a new “tap to join” option in their call log on WhatsApp
Step 3: Click and join an ongoing group call even if it was missed originally.
With the arrival of the WhatsApp joinable group call feature, it will not be necessary to join the group call in the beginning. If that group call is still going on, then you will get the Tap to join option in the call log of WhatsApp. By clicking on this option, you will be connected to the group call. You will also see two options of ignoring and joining within the group calls.
After the new update, if the user has missed the group call, then he will be given the option to reconnect the group caller. Earlier, if the user missed the group call notification, he had to message the caller and enter the reconnect message to rejoin the call, which was inconvenient. WhatsApp has also introduced a new call info screen that will show the details of people who have been invited for group calls. Apart from this, you will also see the names of those who are active during the call. It is very similar to video conferencing.
This feature was spotted on Android in October 2020 and now, WhatsApp is testing it for iOS users. Android and iOS beta testers right now can use the feature.
