WhatsApp adds group call mute button

Both iOS and Android versions of WhatsApp have received a new update that includes the option to mute participants and send messages to particular persons during an audio conversation. The update also includes a notification when a new caller joins a current one.

On Friday, WhatsApp announced the debut of its enhanced group voice call experience, which includes the option to silence other participants. Messages may now be sent to individual participants during the session.

Having the option to silence a person on call comes in handy when the person on call has forgotten to mute himself or herself. As a result, it might potentially be utilized to deliberately silence a person during a conference call. It is possible, however, for the participant to unmute themself at any moment by using the Unmute button.

As additional individuals join big calls, an indication appears to let other participants know that they may either mute or message the other participants in the conversation. WhatsApp now supports 32 people in group voice conversations, and it would be tough to tell when someone joins a group call that already has a large number of participants.
