WhatsApp New voice calling interface is here for beta users of the service. The new interface separates group callers into distinct color-coded cards and adds individual audio waveforms. The feature was first spotted on Android back in December of 2021 when select beta testers got their hands on the update.
As stated by WABetaInfo, the feature is available as part of the version 126.96.36.199 update. And brings the updated interface to some beta testers on the Apple ecosystem. When in group calls, WhatsApp separates the members onto different corners as cards and assigns real-time. With color-coded audio waveforms to each speaker.

Similar to Discord, the indicator will now inform users about active speakers and flatline when they stop talking. The report also mentions a background wallpaper feature for voice calls, though it cannot be edited at the moment.
The new WhatsApp voice call interface would come with a round grey square in the front and center. It will also house the contact name, number, and profile picture.
WhatsApp is planning to bring real-time voice waveforms to calls as well, this will allow the caller to be able to know exactly who is talking.
The messenger service has been spotted working on a new screen for responding to users about their account ban reviews. They are also working towards releasing the ‘Community’ feature in a future update.
