She declared The WhatsApp platform, owned by Meta, has launched a new feature for voice chat for large groups, similar to the Discord platform.
It became possible a long time ago Procedure WhatsApp voice call with up to 32 participants, though the new voice chat feature works a little differently.
The platform designed the new feature to reduce distraction and inconvenience regarding the group call for large groups, which connects to each member of the group.
Voice chats now begin quietly without any ringing through a bubble within the chat that users can click to join.
This feature allows the user to talk about things with those who can join, while allowing the user to continue messaging those who cannot join.

The user can quickly unmute, hang up, or message the group without having to leave the voice chat by clicking on the call controls at the top of the chat.
In the coming weeks, the company will roll out voice chats globally for large groups, starting with those of 33 people or more.
WhatsApp indicates that it protects voice chats with end-to-end encryption by default.
WhatsApp voice chats have the same features as Discord, Telegram, and Slack, allowing large groups of people to communicate via spoken chat.
The launch of the new feature was not surprising, as WABetaInfo reported last August that WhatsApp was testing voice conversations in the beta phase.
The new announcement comes at a time when the messaging platform owned by Meta has added a large number of features over the past few months.
The platform previously introduced the ability for users to use two accounts simultaneously. It also launched passkey support across Android, along with a new Flows function to enhance the shopping experience by allowing users to do things, like choose a seat on a flight or book an appointment, without leaving the app.
The launch also comes just weeks after Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said users and businesses interact more than 600 million times a day across its platforms.
Zuckerberg noted that the group of applications and other revenues in the third quarter amounted to $293 million, up 53 percent year over year, driven largely by the WhatsApp Business platform.
