As of today, if you have not answered an incoming video call on WhatsApp at the beginning, do not worry, since from now on, and while the video call is still in progress, you can enter it at any time you want.
It is the new of the popular messaging platform, owned by Facebook, which makes video calls more functional, seeking that people do not miss interesting moments because they were not able to join in its beginning.
Even if they are ignored at first, they can be accessed later
In addition, users will be able to leave them and re-enter while they are still in progress, and even if they have not accessed the video calls to which they were invited first, they will have a screen where they can see the attendees who are already inside as well as those users who have also been invited but have not yet joined them.
If that is not enough, if users ignore participating in them at first, if they change their mind, they may later join them without prejudice.
Despite the de-escalation and reopening of non-essential activity in some territories, there are still epidemiological situations where the most advisable thing is to avoid physical contact, so video calls will continue to be the order of the day to maintain contact with family and friends from distance.
They know this perfectly on WhatsApp, where they also know that they have a tireless competition that does not stop evolving either, so all these functions seek precisely to make things easier for users who use their service to be in contact with others.
They also add that with the arrival of these capabilities, the security and privacy of end-to-end encryption will continue to be maintained in their service.
We do not know if this news will be reflected or reacted in other services, but the truth is that the competition does not stop increasing its benefits despite everything, so video calls will continue to be more than present over time, having become part essential of communication in our lives.
