WhatsApp has introduced us with group video call and voice calls two years ago. This is the most important and popular feature of WhatsApp apart from texting. The only drawback of WhatsApp calling or video calling is that you can only add four people in a group video call or group voice call. WhatsApp Allows Five People Video Call/Voice Call.
WhatsApp Allows Five People Video Call/Voice Call:
According to a new report from WABetaInfo says that the Facebook-owned company will soon let the users do a group video call or voice calls to more than four people.
The report did not mention the exact number of people who can join a group call together. But there is a mystery. Reports from WABetaInfo say the user can now add an even number of participants in a group video call or voice call. Like 6 participants or 8 participants or 10 participants etc.
It is confirmed that WhatsApp will increase the number of participants in a group call, so its definitely on the cards.
Craze Of Group Video Call:
With the outbreak of Coronavirus, the craze of group video calls has increased drastically. Some of the online conferencing apps like Zoom, Skype, Google Meet has seen a huge download in these 21 days.
These apps can add up to 100 members in a video conference. Unline WhatsApp which will let you add only 4 people to the call. So this app is now adequate for doing an official conference, or even a group of friends too.
Even for general users, WhatsApp’s limitation of four people in a group call isn’t satisfying. So finally, WhatsApp is working on extending the limit of a group call to more than four. As WABetaInfo states, the number would be an ‘even’ one like 6 or 8 or 10 or 12 or 14 or 16 and so on. Right now, the company did not reveal the exact number on its source code. The feature will be first rolled out to WhatsApp Beta users of Android and iOS for testing purpose. Because it is all about extending the limit, the feature could be rolled out in the next couple of weeks before the end of Coronavirus.
