In a recent update, WhatsApp received a call waiting option on popular public demand from the global instant messaging service.
Whats New Coming Up On Whatsapp?
If you’re a frequent WhatsApp user, you’d know, a new message is automatically rejected by the request if the user is already occupied with another call. Many users were searching for options to either stop the call or disconnect the previous call and take part in the new call.
The function will be rolled out globally with the new update. Sadly, we still don’t get the option to hold a call, but users will be informed or prompted with a tone if they receive a call during another call. Either the new feature allows you to cancel the previous call and join the new call, or you can explicitly interrupt the new call. Either way, it’s not a choice to hold or wait for a caller.
The update is being staged, so it’s going to be a couple of weeks before it’s running global. The function will be enabled with the latest version of WhatsApp 2.19.352. The beta version 2.19.357 and version 2.19.358 are also available. As for iOS users, the WhatsAppv2.19.120 update was launched last week.
Besides this, there will also be better group privacy settings in the new update. Users will be able to pick from their contacts a list of people after the update that can connect them to WhatsApp groups. It will not be possible for other contacts to add you to groups.
