Welcome to WhatsApp, where communication meets innovation! This isn’t just your ordinary messaging platform; it’s a powerhouse of features that make staying connected delightful and effortless. Let’s go through the wonders of WhatsApp, with a special focus on its game-changing calling features!
WhatsApp is your instant connection to friends and family. With its user-friendly interface, you can send messages in the blink of an eye. Share jokes and updates, or just drop a casual “Hello” to keep the conversation flowing—it’s like having your digital hangout!
But what’s arguably an even more useful feature is the option to “like” a message. It’s a very natural conversation-ender, perfect for introverts or people with anxiety who can’t end a conversation otherwise.
Why settle for plain text updates when you can showcase your life with flair? WhatsApp’s Status feature lets you share photos, videos, and quirky updates with your contacts. Give them a peek into your world, one status update at a time. This feature also gives you various privacy options that enable you to share your updates with a select group of users while hiding them from the rest.
Now, let’s shine the spotlight on the star of the show—WhatsApp calling! Say goodbye to traditional phone calls and embrace the clarity of WhatsApp calls. It’s like having a virtual phone booth, connecting you with friends around the globe.
And the best part is, you don’t have to pay for it! Yep, you can call someone anyone in the world, on any continent, without any additional charges as long both of you have an internet connection!
Missing that face-to-face connection? WhatsApp’s video calls bridge the gap. Share smiles, stories, and laughter in real time, bringing you closer to your loved ones. It’s like a mini-reunion in the palm of your hand.
Today, we’ll focus on WhatsApp voice calls and how they interact with your phone’s native call feature.
Can I Still Receive Normal Calls When in a Whatsapp Voice Call?
So, let’s get straight to it: can you receive normal calls when you’re already on a WhatsApp voice call? The answer is yes, you can! Technically, you can receive a call when you’re talking on a WhatsApp call, but you don’t have to pick up.
You see, when you’re on a WhatsApp call, any other call will be received as usual. The other user will only hear the dial tone; they won’t know you’re talking to someone else. You can choose to either pick up or let the call go to voicemail.
Or you can also choose to pick up the incoming call, in which case the WhatsApp call will automatically be placed on hold. Now, you can talk to the new caller while the WhatsApp caller either holds or chooses to hang up and continue the conversation later.
So, how is the other person supposed to know that you’re already on a WhatsApp call? Well, they won’t know that you’re on a WhatsApp call if they’re calling you on your phone number. However, if they also call you on WhatsApp, they’ll be notified that you’re busy.
You could also send them a WhatsApp or a text message letting them know you’re busy at the moment but will be calling them back shortly.
If someone calls you on WhatsApp while you’re on a WhatsApp call, you can simply hang up and organize a conference call! Of course, this depends largely on the call’s purpose and the conversation topic, but it’s still a viable option if the two callers are your friends/siblings/cousins.
Here’s how to create a conference /group call on WhatsApp
Step 1: Open WhatsApp on your smartphone and go straight to the Calls tab.
Step 2: There, the first option you’ll see is called Create call link. Tap on it.
Step 3: So, your link is now created. Now, you can choose if you want it to be an audio or a video call.
Step 4: You can either share the link on WhatsApp or copy and/or share the link across other apps and platforms.
Step 5: Now, all there’s left is for the participants to join the call and wait for the others to do the same!
In the end
As our blog for today has reached its end, let’s quickly discuss all we’ve talked about! WhatsApp is a versatile platform offering various features for a seamless online communication experience.
