[News] WhatsApp Increases Group Call Limit, Allows Up To 8 People In Group Video, Voice Calls

Hello Everyone,
WhatsApp has announced that it is expanding support for a number of participants in a group call with the new limit now set at 8 people -- instead of four previously. The new limit on users has been announced on both video and voice calls. The feature has been announced to make it easier for users to communicate with their friends and family using the platform.
The information about the update was shared by WhatsApp's Will Cathcart who has confirmed that the update will be available to all Android and iPhone users starting next week.

In a separate message shared with users, WhatsApp's parent firm, Facebook said, "WhatsApp calls are another way to stay in touch... Soon you’ll be able to have group voice and video calls with up to eight people on WhatsApp. As before, these calls are secured with end-to-end encryption. So no one else can view or listen to your private conversation, not even WhatsApp.”
The increase in the limit of users comes at a time when more than half the world is under lockdown, with many distanced from friends and family for weeks now. This has helped apps like Zoom, Houseparty, Google Duo and others grow in popularity during this period. However, with WhatsApp now increasing the cap on number of participants in a call, we're sure to see the platform become more popular with users.

There are two ways to go about making group calls on WhatsApp with the platform providing users the opportunity to either start a call from within a group or with an individual user and then add more participants to the group video/voice call.

From a group
If you're interested in starting a video call from within a group all you'd need to do is click on the call icon on the right-hand corner at the top of the group's window. Then add participants as per your choice from the group.
Then simply click on voice or video call button at the top to initiate the call to the selected participants.

From an individual chat
For this, the process again is quite simple and is essentially a matter of following a few simple steps.
-- To begin with, open the chat window of the participant you want to initiate the video or voice call with.
-- Then either tap on the call or video call icon at the top of the screen.
-- Once you're within the call click on the "Add Participant" button to bring more users into the call.
-- This can be repeated up to seven times to add up to 8 participants in the call.
