Coming to WhatsApp Group invites feature, this feature is even more useful than the existing one.

Last feature is the call waiting feature, but it is not exactly new. WhatsApp started rolling out a stable update for Android users on Google Play with the useful ‘call waiting’ feature recently. Earlier, the same feature was rolled out to iOS users last month.
As you already know, the call waiting feature lets users know for an intermittent call. What this means for WhatsApp Android users is, that they will know if any other person calls them in between an ongoing call. Rather than automatically disconnecting, now your WhatsApp will show an alert and to the second call with an option to ‘End & Accept’ or ‘Decline’.
