WhatsApp, the popular messaging app, recently unveiled a group voice chat feature that allows up to 32 participants to join in and discuss. Unlike conventional group calls, voice chats quietly notify group members without ringing their phones; members can join or leave at will, and it will auto-conclude after 60 minutes of no activity in the group voice chat session.
Users can start a voice call in any group chat by tapping on the waveform icon within it; the feature has a user-friendly interface for optimal experience, and encryption is always used for end-to-end voice chats, maintaining WhatsApp’s commitment to privacy.
WhatsApp also allows its users to send voice messages in individual or group chats. To do this, simply click on the microphone and begin speaking; when finished, they click the check mark. While recording a voice message, users can use the X icon to cancel recording while clicking the red pause button to pause recording or preview an earlier draft of their message.
If you would like to initiate a group voice call, simply open the group chat in which you wish to voice call and then follow these steps: If your group chat has 33 or more members, tap Group Call before adding contacts from it before tapping Voice Call; for 32-person or less group chats, only members may participate.
Click Voice Call after making your choice and confirm it with all group members before tapping Voice Call, and then Voice Call again to start it. If it has 33 participants or fewer, just tap Voice Call after making your selection and select participants before clicking Voice Call. Voice Call will start automatically; otherwise, simply confirm by tapping the Voice Call button next time your group’s voice call begins automatically when it’s complete!
This new feature provides an ideal way to stay in touch with friends and family who are all too busy for phone conversations or hold group discussions, as everyone can take part at their own pace without needing to take turns talking.
