How to create WhatsApp call link on iPhone

WhatsApp is one of the largest instant messaging services in the world. It is the primary service used for audio and video calls in several countries. Considering that, the company constantly makes additions and improvements to the service. The latest addition allows users to create WhatsApp call links on iPhone and Android smartphones. Read along to learn how you can create and share call links with your friends and family. 

As mentioned earlier, a huge number of users around the globe prefer WhatsApp for voice and video calls. The user base of the service is over 2 billion. The “Create Call Link” feature on WhatsApp allows users to create and share links to WhatsApp voice or video calls. 

Several video conferencing platforms offer this feature, and from the looks of it, that is what WhatsApp seems to be replicating. Moreover, it lets you share a call link on WhatsApp, allowing the person on the receiving end to get their affairs sorted and hop on the call. 

This approach is much better than the traditional method. If you want to ask someone to call you or if you want to call, you can send the user a link and ask them to join the call at their convenience or schedule it for a particular time. 

  • WhatsApp call links do not work on the desktop version of WhatsApp. Currently, the feature is only available for iOS and Android users.
  • Like WhatsApp messages, voice and video calls also support end-to-end encryption.
  • Once you share the call link and join the call, the call will automatically end if no one joins the call in the next 60 minutes. Also, these links are valid for 90 days. 
  • Anyone with the link can join the call. Please share this link only with the people you trust. If the link falls into the wrong hands, it might be very problematic. Also, you cannot delete these links manually. 
  • Blocked users cannot join calls using the shared link.
