WhatsApp Increases Group Call Limit to 8
This is one among those updates that Facebook announced recently. This is in addition to the feature update that allows messenger Rooms to hold up to 50 people with no time limit.
The good thing about the move is its timings. In testing times amid the Covid-19 fiasco when most of the population is under lockdown, it will help more people to stay connected with their families, friends and kin.
The company was found testing the beta version of the feature across Android and iOs devices. Now as the company has announced the full scale rollout, the feature will be available to every WhatsApp user starting next week. It will work on voice calls and video calls both.
The roll out is being speculated as FB’s move to take in its competitors like Google Duo that is already allowing 12 people in a group call.
The feature is similar to group video and voice calls. It says that if you have a group of more than four members you can make a voice or video call by adding up to eight people including yourself.
To make a call, tap on the call icon on top of the group chat. If the group comprises over eight members, you’ll have to select the participants for the group call.
You may choose all eight participants or a few of them. It’s up to you. Eight is the highest limit including the person making the call. Stay tuned to know more about the feature. We will get you updated as things emerge.
