WhatsApp calling is one of the most popular WhatsApp features for users. Users can call other users without the need for credit or free and only need an internet connection.
Ringtones for incoming calls between regular telephones and WhatsApp phones can also be distinguished so as not to confuse the phone owner.
Meanwhile for the caller, the screen that is displayed will show the call status, namely calling and ringing. Both are similar but not the same because many users don’t know the difference between the two. The difference in calling and ringing status on WhatsApp is related to the availability or connection of the recipient’s internet network. For more details, see the following explanation.
The difference between Calling and Ringing in WhatsApp calls lies in the condition of the intended user’s internet network.
Description Calling means that the user being called is outside the network, aka not connected to an internet connection, either WiFi or quota. Calls can still be made and the ringing tone is still connected, but the recipient of the call cannot receive the call on the internet.
When the call recipient’s cellphone is connected to an internet connection, WhatsApp will leave a sign in the form of a missed call notification both in text messages and in the call menu.
While Ringing means that the user being called is connected to an internet connection.
Called users will get a notification in the form of a ringtone or a vibrating phone. The call will also appear on the screen display. If the call ends, it is very likely that the recipient of the call will not be able to answer the call. Answered calls are marked in seconds for the duration of the running call. That’s the difference between calling and ringing on WhatsApp.
