WhatsApp to Introduce Scheduled Calls Feature like Google Meet and Zoom

WhatsApp is adding new features to catch up with rival apps like Telegram and Google Meet. The latest addition is a feature that allows users to schedule calls in group chats, similar to what Zoom and Google Meet already offer.

The scheduling feature was first spotted on WhatsApp beta for Android and has now started appearing on the WhatsApp beta for iOS version on the TestFlight app. According to WABetaInfo, the new feature will be available soon to all users.

Once enabled, a new context menu will appear, offering a scheduling option that allows users to choose a time for the group call and name it. All members of the group will then receive a notification, making it easy for them to join the call promptly. It’s important to note that the scheduling feature works for both audio and video calls and depends on which call button users use to open the context menu.

This feature is likely to be a game-changer for group meetings and events, as it allows group members to plan their schedules in advance. It ensures that everyone in the group is aware of the scheduled time, allowing them to prepare accordingly, without the need for additional reminders. Additionally, it can help reduce the likelihood of missed or delayed calls.

As the feature is already under beta testing, it is expected to be available on the stable version of WhatsApp for Android and iOS soon. Since it is only a minor feature, it should not take long for it to roll out to all users.

WhatsApp’s latest addition is just one of many new features that the app has been adding in recent years. As the world becomes increasingly reliant on messaging apps, WhatsApp has been working hard to keep up with its competitors by adding new features and improving its user experience.
