WhatsApp adds new features for video calls

Among the new functions, “screen sharing with audio” stands out, which will allow users to enjoy videos together by viewing the screen and listening to the audio at the same time.

WhatsApp announced the arrival of a series of functions aimed at optimizing video calls on its platform, both for the desktop version and for mobile devices.

Specifically, there will be three features that the messaging service will integrate in the coming weeks.

First is “screen sharing with audio,” which will allow users to enjoy videos together by viewing the screen and listening to the audio at the same time.

Added to this is the possibility of including up to 32 people in video calls, regardless of the device used: a significant increase compared to the limit established in 2020, which imposed a maximum of eight participants on users.

But that is not all. WhatsApp is also working to optimize the user experience in video calls by introducing “the speaker in the foreground or highlighted”, which allows other participants to know at all times who has the floor at a given moment in the conversation, without needing to change windows.

“We constantly strive to achieve the best audio and video quality, to offer you fluid calls wherever you are,” writes the platform on its official blog, announcing the upcoming developments reviewed by WIRED.

In fact, recently, the famous messaging application presented “the MLow codec, designed to improve the reliability of calls.” To be more precise, this update incorporates a series of useful improvements for users: the elimination of echo and noise in calls even in noisy environments, a better resolution for video calls (in the case of fast connections), and, in In general, clearer audio, regardless of the quality of the connection or the device used, even if it is old.

Finally, the company also adds that it will soon introduce improvements to the quality of private WhatsApp calls.
