What you need to know
– WhatsApp’s latest update adds calling waiting to the app.
– If you receive a second call while you’re already talking to someone, the call
won’t automatically get rejected.
– You’ll now get a notification for the call, and the option to end your current call
to switch to the second one.
– There’s also a fix for battery issues on OnePlus phones.
WhatsApp just got a really neat feature with its latest update. WhatsApp is making multiple calls less confusing with call waiting that lets you automatically create reminders using the messaging app, though that’s pretty cool, too. And it’s not about call waiting support.
Previously, when you received a call while you were already on one, WhatsApp would automatically reject it for you, and notify the person on the other side with a message I’m sure you’ve already seen more than once: “[Your contact’s name] is on another call.” The recipient, in this case, would only receive an addition to their list of missed calls.
