WhatsApp adds Call waiting feature for Android in the its latest update


WhatsApp is regularly receiving updates, the company is always working on new features. In the most recent update, the Facebook-owned instant messaging platform got the Call waiting feature for iOS. The feature was added to the app last month. After introducing the feature in iOS, the company has rolled out the feature of Android devices as well.

The feature will allow users to accept an incoming WhatsApp voice call while they are already on another call.

call waiting in WhatsApp

Before this update, When someone tried to call you on WhatsApp while you were already on the phone, they’d hear it ring, no one would answer, then they’d get disconnected. The only way you could get notified about the call was by checking the call history. WhatsApp has added some more feature in the app:


– New privacy settings allow you to control who can add you to groups. Go to Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups to get started.
– Added call-waiting support so you can choose to accept an incoming WhatsApp call while you’re already on another call.
– You can now require a fingerprint to unlock WhatsApp. Tap Settings > Account > Privacy > Fingerprint lock and enable Unlock with fingerprint.
– Fixed an issue that caused fast battery drain on some devices.
The call-waiting feature is available on WhatsApp version  v2.19.352 stable and above and v2.19.128 of WhatsApp Business. For the consumer app, the latest stable release, which is rolling out on the Play Store, has it along with the group privacy setting we covered a while ago. You can also find it on the latest beta v2.19.357.
