WhatsApp has an amazing ‘Call waiting’ feature for Android phones. The new and amazing call-waiting feature on WhatsApp currently works on for version 2.19.352 of stable release and versions 2.19.357/2.19.358 on beta channels.

What is call waiting?

If you are already on a call and get a second call on WhatsApp then your phone will ring and notify you about the second call.

You’ll have two buttons option Decline and End & Accept. Clicking ‘Decline’ will reject the second call. And Pressing on End & Accept will terminate the first call and connect you to the second caller.

Can you hold a call on WhatsApp

The latest update changes more than one feature about calls on WhatsApp. If someone tried to call you on WhatsApp when you were already on a WhatsApp call, they hear a busy tone. But when we check this on our device after the new WhatsApp update, the second caller no longer gets a busy tone. Instead, the sound has been changed to that of a normal ringing tone.

If you want an answer either it’ll support call holding simply, it would be a NO. Because WhatsApp still doesn’t let you hold the first call while to switch over to the second caller and vice versa. There’s no choice to merge the incoming call with the first call and convert it to a conference call either.

However, you can hold the second caller without declining their call, which sometimes would translate to hanging upon them.

How to hold a call on WhatsApp (only works on the second caller)

Just, in theory, you can only use call holding on the second caller by silencing the ring when you’re receiving the second call. You can turn off the ringer by pressing either of the volume buttons when you receive a call.

If we doing so, the second caller wouldn’t know if you were on another call. You can then continue to keep talking to the first caller, without the ringing sound.
