Open Settings and go to Connections > More connections settings to make sure Nearby device scanning is turned on. Next, go to Apps > WhatsApp > Permissions and set Nearby devices to Allow.
If the issue persists, check that WhatsApp is on the latest version and try whitelisting it from battery optimization.
Hope this helps.

Check that your earbuds are allowed to make phone calls. Go to Settings > Connections > Bluetooth (turn it on). Under "Available devices" or "Paired devices", select the settings icon next to your earbuds, then enable Calls in the Use for section.
If this doesn't work, back up your WhatsApp chats by selecting the 3 vertical dots > Settings > Chats > Chats backup > Back up, then uninstall WhatsApp.
Restart your phone and reinstall WhatsApp. Once WhatsApp is reinstalled, give all the necessary permissions for the app.
If the problem persists, try resetting your Samsung earbuds.

Hi. Thanks for the suggestions. "Enable calls and audio" were already enabled. I uninstalled and reinstalled WhatsApp to no avail. Also reset my buds but that didn't help. I even tried the calls with my Sony noise cancelling ???? but it didn't help.

Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, I'm out of ideas... Just make sure your phone and earbuds are on the latest version. Here's how to update your Samsung earbuds.
If that doesn't help either, then I suggest you report the problem to WhatsApp by opening the app and going to Settings > Help > Contact Us.

Ok, it is maybe a problem with the app itself then...
Hope it will be fixed soon.

Hi. First of all, thank you for your suggestions. My "nearby devices" was already on. I removed WhatsApp from battery optimization but the problem still persists. It's frustrating a bit but thank you again for trying to help.
