WHATSAPP is revamping a major part of the app on iPhone.
There’ll be a brand new calling interface that looks totally different.
Importantly, it’s already being tested right now.
So if you’re part of the iPhone beta, you might see the new look – scroll down to find out how to join.
It was discovered by the super-sleuths at WABetaInfo, which dissects test versions of WhatsApp for new features or changes.
“WhatsApp has released the 184.108.40.206 beta update on TestaFlight,” said WABetaInfo.
“And there are some important improvements for voice and video calls.
“The first one is a new user interface when you call WhatsApp users.”
WABetaInfo compared it to Apple’s own FaceTime interface.
You get several quick-tap options, as well as a Ring button.
And the update also makes it possible to join group calls.
Group calling already exists on WhatsApp.
But this update will make it easy to hop into group calls that are already ongoing.
This is possible if you temporarily ignore a group call invite.
If you then re-open WhatsApp and the call is still ongoing, you’ll be presented with an alert.
This lets you quickly hop into the call without having to request access.
You’ll see this new Tap To Join banner in the Calls tab.
And there’ll be a Join Call button in the group chat where the call originated.
How to get WhatsApp beta
To download WhatsApp beta for your smartphone you need to go to Google Play on your Android and search for WhatsApp.
Scroll down the page until you see “Become a Beta Tester”.
Tap the “I’m In” button and then click “Join” to confirm.
Now all you have to do is wait for the update to the beta version of the app.
Joining the WhatsApp beta on iPhone is more difficult, and has limited capacity.
