How to create and share a voice call link in WhatsApp?
To enter the video call, the people who receive the link only must tap the link and wait a few seconds for the connection to be made. However, they must have the WhatsApp application installed on their device.
To create and share the voice call link you need to follow these steps:
- Open the WhatsApp application.
- Tap the Call tab.
- Tap the Create call link option.
- Choose Voice under Call type.
- Share the link through any of the available options.
However, it is important to mention that the call does not announce the arrival of a new member, or it is not possible to control if someone joins (in case a person already in the call sends another person the link). Considering the growing importance of phone calls with the use of messaging applications, this novelty is great news that will make everything much easier both personally and at work.
It remains to be seen if the link has an expiration time or how these types of calls will appear in the WhatsApp call history. But the truth is that with this update the improvement of the service is important.
Update WhatsApp to access this new feature
Users can easily update WhatsApp from the app store of their devices. Normally, if a user receives a message indicating that the current version of the app is not compatible with the phone, the ideal is to update the messaging service immediately.
Therefore, Infobae recommends always using the latest version of WhatsApp, as it includes the newest features (as explained in this article on links) and bug fixes. That’s how simple it is to update the app:
Search for WhatsApp Messenger in the Google Play Store and tap Update.
Search for WhatsApp Messenger in Apple App Store and tap Update.
Press JioStore or Store from the application menu. Scroll the selector to the right and select Social; then select WhatsApp. Press OK or SELECT > UPDATE.
One more novelty for WhatsApp
In the message published where the arrival of the links is indicated, something that can be very important for companies or groups of friends has also been indicated. This has to do with the number of people who can make use of video calls at the same time. These are already being tested with 32 participants. There is no data regarding its implementation, but the truth is that the leap is qualitative and, for sure, will be used on some occasions. Therefore, we are talking about new features in WhatsApp in pairs.
How to create a link with your WhatsApp number?
WhatsApp’s click-to-chat feature allows you to start a chat with someone without having to have their phone number saved in your phone’s address book. If you know someone’s phone number and they have an active WhatsApp account, you can create a link that will allow you to start a chat with them. When you click on the link, it will open the chat with that person automatically. This feature is available both on the phone and on WhatsApp Web.
Create your own link
Use https://wa.me/<number> where <number> is a phone number in international format. Do not include zeros, parentheses or dashes when adding the phone number in this format.
