Cross-platform messaging and VOiP service WhatsApp has raised its group call limit from four to eight participants, parent company Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced. That’s obviously double the amount prior, something which should prove helpful to users amidst the global coronavirus pandemic quarantines.
WhatsApp Expands Group Call Limit from Four to Eight People
WhatsApp group calls can now support up to eight users simultaneously. That figure is now equal to that of rival Houseparty, but still short of Google Duo, which allows up to 12 participants to join into a single group conversation.
The feature started rolling out early last week on its beta Android and iOS versions. But, it’s expanding to all users on both mobile platforms. Currently, WhatsApp leads its competitors by a substantial sum, claiming 2 billion users worldwide.
