WhatsApp has introduced an interesting feature, which includes the ability to silence people during group calls (via Android Central).

This feature, it seems useful not only to stop the voice of people who forget to do it yourself, but also if you are in the same room with someone who is also on the phone and do not want to hear an echo of what he can say, transmits Telegraph.

Although some conferencing applications, such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams, allow hosts to mute the voice of all participants (or individuals), they do not usually provide a way for individual users to mute anyone they want during a call.

Some new features for group calls on @WhatsApp: You can now mute or message specific people on a call (great if someone forgets to mute themselves!), And we've added a helpful indicator so you can more easily see when more people join large calls.

In addition to the new 'mute' feature, WhatsApp now lets you send messages to specific people during a group call.

WhatsApp is also launching a new banner that will notify you when someone new joins a call after it has started.
