GROUP video calls on WhatsApp are quickly becoming a lot more crowded.
The Facebook-owned app just rolled out a brand new feature that makes sharing easier, especially when inviting a lot of people.
It’s called a call link.
The latest addition allows you to share a link to a WhatsApp video call.
This can then be sent to other friends, family, and pretty much anyone.
“We’re rolling out call links on WhatsApp starting this week, so you can share a link to start a call with a single tap,” said CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
The social networking giant has also announced that it has started testing group video calls for up to 32 people.
Currently, only eight participants can participate in a video call at the same time.
