WhatsApp Announces Video Calling Improvements, Screen Sharing With Audio, More

Posted June 13, 2024 at 8:24pm by iClarified
WhatsApp has announced some new updates to calling that include speaker spotlight, more participants, and screen sharing with audio.

Since we brought Calling to WhatsApp back in 2015, we've continued to improve it with the introduction of group calls, video calls, and multi-platform support. Today we have several updates that will make calls across your devices even bigger and better, rolling out over the next few weeks

What's New


Screen sharing with audio: Ideal for watching videos together, now when you share your screen, you can share your audio too
More participants: Now you can have up to 32 people on a video call across all your devices
Speaker spotlight: Easily see who's talking with the speaker automatically highlighted and appearing first on screen


Additionally, the company is using a new audio codec for improved call reliability.

We also remain relentlessly focused on audio and video quality, for clearer calls no matter where you are. We recently launched MLow codec which improves call reliability. Calls made on mobile devices benefit from improved noise and echo cancellation, making it easier to have calls in noisy environments, and video calls have higher resolution for those with faster connections. Audio is crisper overall, even if you have poor network connectivity or are using an older device. You can read more about the MLow codec and listen to the difference in audio quality here.

You can download WhatsApp Messenger from the App Store for free.
