WhatsApp is currently testing a feature that will allow users to build links to join calls on the messaging service.
WhatsApp has been developing a host
of features to improve the user experience. Following the introduction of a new
search tool and message reactions, WhatsApp has been discovered testing a
feature that would allow users to establish links to join calls on the
messaging service. Previously, WhatsApp enabled users to join a call even if it
had already begun. It will now be possible for the host to create a link for
WhatsApp calls and invite other contacts.

will soon make it easy to join calls by using call links. The call host will be
able to build and share links inside their contact list with anyone. The link
can be sent to folks who are not on your contact list. It is vital to note that

WhatsApp will roll out the feature at its own pace.
Aside from that, WhatsApp was also
seen working on a new search message shortcut, and hints of WhatsApp's message
reactions feature were also discovered on WhatsApp Desktop beta. WhatsApp will
soon allow users to respond to messages with emojis. In a message, users will
be able to select from the six emoji selections listed below. The capability
was discovered in the messaging app's beta version.
