WhatsApp is always striving to introduce novel features to its app. The primary objective is to make users’ lives easier, whether they are individuals or businesses.
We are aware that WhatsApp Voice calls function similarly to regular calls in many regions of the world. However, these calls are more intrusive than standard chats. As a result, WhatsApp intends to enhance its voice-calling capabilities.
The company is introducing a “new audio chat” feature that may resemble voice chats on Discord.
A new audio call interface is enabled in WhatsApp beta version 18.104.22.168 WABetaInfo.
In the top app menu of a conversation, the conventional call button has been replaced by a waveform logo. When you tap it, a menu with open audio chat and call group options appears.
WhatsApp launched an incomplete user interface (UI) associated with the new calling option, despite the fact that the feature is not yet operational.
In addition, the bar expands when you attempt to start an audio chat to make room for a single end-call button at the top. In addition, it was anticipated that additional options would be added as soon as the option became operational.
Even though the company hasn’t said much about the feature, the way it is set up now leaves room for speculation.
However, it is also anticipated that the new feature will serve as a discrete means of joining and leaving group chats with coworkers and friends. Similar to voice chats on Twitter, Spaces, Slack, Huddles, and Discord.
Additionally, the WhatsApp naming strategy suggests that it will operate similarly to the alternatives listed above, particularly Discord.
As a result, the fact that the call group option is still accessible indicates that this will work. Indeed, users will enjoy the new audio chat feature because it will not continuously ring your phone until they join.
The company claims that they intend to make it available to the general public shortly. Additionally, it is not a given that it will ever be realized. The business may still abandon the plan before making an official announcement.
Furthermore, Meta has as of late sent off another WhatsApp application for Windows clients, which is a very versatile application and works a lot quicker.
The quickest platform makes it possible to hold group video calls with up to eight people at once. Additionally, it supports audio calls with up to 32 people.
The tech giant is always looking for ways to improve, like faster device linking and better syncing across devices with new features like link previews and stickers.
On the platform, WhatsApp has also set up its official chat, where users can get the most recent information about the app. Updates and usage instructions for both Android and iOS will be included in the app.
The chat displays a green badge and includes a comprehensive app usage guide as well as information about forthcoming updates and features.
The verified badges will indicate that the chat is genuine, assisting in the prevention of scams and frauds that mimic the official WhatsApp account.
