Whatsapp has introduced a new feature called “Joinable calls” that lets the users join the calls who missed the group calls. Till now, there was no option to join the ongoing group call. The active members can add members during the group voice or video calls.
Earlier the feature was spotted on the beta versions of both Android and iOS. Whatsapp has confirmed that the feature is arriving for all the users. If the user missed the group call, there would be an option of “Tap to Join” to join the group call.

If you missed any group video or audio call, then in the call log on Whastapp, you will see a “Tap to join” option to join the ongoing group call. You just need to click on the option to join the ongoing calls.
The app also shows the call info that shows who all are invited to the calls but not yet joined. And it also shows the participants who are active in the call in the call info screen. Also, there is an Ignore button in the call info screen that lets you ignore the call and join later from the Calls tab.
