Imagine you are on a group call on WhatsApp and have to remind people to join in time by dropping several rounds of messages. Turns out the upcoming feature will help you steer away from dropping those messages. WhatsApp is pushing a new feature to schedule voice or video group calls on the app itself.

Part of WhatsApp Beta v2.23.17.7 for Android, the feature enables users to arrange a video or voice group call adding all the required participants and setting a time for the event. WhatsApp will send notifications to the participants 15 minutes before the scheduled call similar to how Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom operate.

WABetaInfo stumbled upon the upcoming feature which is being tested on WhatsApp Beta for Android available via Google Play Store. Note that the feature is available to a subset of users as any other beta features in the works. Once the instant messaging app receives reports on how the feature performed and the bugs, we will see a generalized rollout in the coming weeks or so although there are no dates available at the moment.
