Audio and video calls are among the most popular features for WhatsApp personal and business users. Soon, you can schedule WhatsApp group calls like Meet and Zoom.
WhatsApp strives to narrow the gap with its competitors by consistently rolling out a range of novel features. Scheduling group calls feature attempts to make inroads into the Google Meet and Zoom territory.
This feature was identified in an earlier WhatsApp beta version a few months back. It’s being released to beta testers, indicating its proximity to an official launch.
This new addition represents a significant enhancement compared to the existing process of arranging group calls. Users must engage in numerous back-and-forth messages to settle on a mutually convenient time.
The new feature streamlines this by allowing users to select a suitable time individually, triggering automatic notifications for all participants. This streamlined approach will considerably simplify the process of planning and synchronizing group calls.
How to Schedule a WhatsApp Group Call?
Users can easily tap the call button to schedule a group call and opt for the “Schedule Call” feature. From there, they can specify the desired date, time, and call type (video or voice).
After scheduling the call, an event will be appended to the group chat, and participants will receive a notification 15 minutes before the call commences.
A video call link consisting of 22 characters will be generated, providing users with a unique way to participate in the video conference call.
