WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app in the world, with hundreds of millions of active users each month. The popular app has remained successful due to a constant stream of updates that brings new features and functions.
Many people where a bit worried when Facebook acquired the developers behind the app, but the company stated that the service would continue to work as expected. There will be no pressure on the developers. One of the greatest boons was the removal of a user tax of $1, which had to be paid each year to use the app.
‘Call Waiting’ Feature to Come to WhatsApp Soon
The developers remain hard at work, and new updates are continuously pushed. The latest one offers an excellent feature if you like to use WhatsApp for voice calls. Below you can find more information about it and how to enable the feature.
The wonders of call waiting
Call waiting was implemented in the 1990s for mobile phones, allowing users to receive another call when one was already active. There was also the option to dial another number while you were in an ongoing call. The latest update brings this excellent feature to WhatsApp.
If you are in an ongoing call via WhatsApp and another user will try to call you, a knocking sound will be heard. A significant downside is represented by the fact that you cannot accept the incoming call unless you end the current one. This is a bit disappointing since call holding is a lovely perk when you can stop the second conversation in less than a minute.
Using the feature
To enable the feature, you need to download the latest version of the app on your device. The newest update is WhatsApp 2.19.352, and it can be downloaded via the Google Play Store or by downloading an APK file from an external source. More improvements could come in the future.
