Speaking about the update, WhatsApp said in a blog post, “At a time when so many of us are apart, there’s nothing better than getting together on a group call with friends and family, and there’s nothing worse than realising that you missed a special moment.
“Some of the best conversations happen when you least expect it. Now, if someone in your group misses a call when the phone rings, they can still join whenever they like. You can also drop-off and re-join so long as the call is still ongoing.”
As we mentioned earlier, this isn’t the only upgrade coming to WhatsApp.
Until now, using WhatsApp on your laptop, computer or tablet meant keeping a secure connection to a smartphone. However, after years of waiting that’s all changing.
