WhatsApp now gets call waiting, but no call holding
Facebook-owned WhatsApp has become the latest Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) service provider to support call waiting features even as the company has skipped adding call holding for now.
When you’re already talking on the mobile phone and another person tries to call you, most phones and operators let you know that you’ve got a call waiting. Very few VOIP services support that, though, and WhatsApp wasn’t among them until now, Android Police reported on Friday.
Earlier, when somebody would try to call you on WhatsApp while you were already on the phone, they would hear it ring, but, no one would answer. The call would then get disconnected.
Call waiting is available in v2.19.352stable (APK Mirror) and above of WhatsApp, and v2.19.128 (APK Mirror) of WhatsApp Business, the report added.
Meanwhile, the latest WhatsApp beta update has brought three new options for dark mode on the app.
The light theme would offer a white background. Dark theme, as the name suggests, would enable dark mode on WhatsApp, according to WABeta Info, a fan website that tracks WhatsApp updates.
