WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a new "Call Link" feature, which will enable users to create a link to join a call on Windows beta, according to WABetaInfo.

The app users can choose the call type between voice and video. Then, they copy the link and share it with their WhatsApp chats in order to invite people to join the call.

Meanwhile, the URL will be unique every time someone creates a new call link so that no one can join users' private calls without their approval.

Interestingly, the new tool will allow users to invite people to join a WhatsApp call without the need to add them to the contacts.

The new call link option is released to some beta testers after installing the WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2307.1.0 update available on the Microsoft Store, and is expected to roll out to more users over the coming days, the report said.

Earlier this month, the platform was said to be developing the ability to transcribe voice notes in order to make it easier for users to read voice notes if they couldn’t listen to them.

WABetaInfo revealed that they found this feature back in September 2021 when WhatsApp first began working on it, but the development was interrupted for unknown reasons.

These transcriptions are always carried out locally on the device by downloading relevant language packs and are never shared with WhatsApp or Apple so you’re still the only that can listen to the content of your voice notes. However, the feature may only work on recent versions of iOS, according to the report.
