Whatsapp keeps bringing new types of updates for its users. Recently, the Meta-owned messaging service launched the Message Yourself feature, and now several reports have surfaced that it is working on its view once text message feature as well. Along with this, Whatsapp provides different types of facilities. This includes both voice calling and video calling.
Whatsapp provides end-to-end encrypted voice and video calling to its users for Android, iOS and web versions. With this a user can connect to anyone and anytime. For this only a stable internet connection is required.
At the same time, the call link feature of Whatsapp provides you the facility of group voice calling. You can add up to 32 people for voice calling and up to 8 people for video calling.
