In recent weeks we have been informing you of a function that is very common in other video calling apps and that is extremely useful because it does not leave anyone out, no matter how late they arrive for the virtual appointment. Instead of having to dissolve the current communication, we can simply wait for everyone to come together little by little, even if it has started. This, which seems so elementary, was something that was not available for video conferences of up to eight participants within WhatsApp, where we had to be all available at the same time to start the chat without leaving anyone behind. And surprisingly, this option has gone from being an element of the beta versions to being available in the official releases of the App Store and the Play Store. How do we join the call? As you can see from the video that they have published from Facebook (WhatsApp), the idea is as simple as it is effective. And it is that when a group is in a video call and we want to enter, first we will receive the notice on the screen that a meeting is taking place and, just below our image, a huge “Join” button that we can press. It will be at that moment when we become part of the group as one more, as we say, without the need for anyone to do anything since the call is kept open at all times for any member of the group to enter when they feel like it. We have been able to read the explanation for this decision on the official Facebook blog, where they assure that “as the popularity of group calls continues to grow, we have been working to improve people’s experience on WhatsApp.” So for a few hours, from the social network they boast of presenting “the possibility of joining a group call, even after it has started. Calls that can be joined reduce the burden of answering a group call when it begins and provide spontaneity and ease of in-person conversations to group calls on WhatsApp “, so we can take our time without the hassle of having to accept it yes or yes. And it is that from the company they affirm that “some of the best conversations happen when you least expect it. Now, if someone in your group misses a call when the phone rings, they can still join whenever they want. They can also leave it and always rejoin the call is still in progress. “
