WhatsApp Introduces Call Links Feature For Video And Voice Calls


WhatsApp has announced a useful addition to its calling feature this week called the Call Links. Users can create a link for their voice or video calls and share it with anyone who uses Whatsapp on their smartphone. Call Links will also allow WhatsApp to become a viable alternative for Zoom and Google Meet for many people.

How it works?

This feature is expected to be available for both Android and iOS platforms and will appear on the Calls tab of the WhatsApp Chat list. Here, users will be able to generate links for scheduled or instant calls (both voice and video) to share the link with their friends or family on individual chats or groups. Other participants can join the call anytime with that link depending on their convenience.

  • Call Links will be available in the Call section of your WhatsApp account and the option Create Call Link will be at the top of the call history list. Just create the link and share it with the people you want to be part of the said call.
  • The link is compatible with both video and voice calls. WhatsApp is also working on support for encrypted video calls for up to 32 people which is undergoing tests on the platform.
  • The messaging app will reveal more details on its availability in the coming weeks. We also expect Call Links to be available on desktop when the calling feature comes to the web version.
