Some days ago, WhatsApp increased the limit of participants in group video calls but now it is all set to roll out the new limit of participants. WhatsApp’s new feature comes at a time when the dependability on video calling apps has increased by many folds. With half the planet completing most of their important operations from home, a reliable video calling platform is that the only need of the hour. Earlier, WhatsApp allowed only four participants to hitch a gaggle video call.
As per a WABetainfo report, WhatsApp has increased the limit of participants from four to eight. WhatsApp is ready to roll out the feature that might allow users to feature 8 participants during a group video call. The feature is going to be initially released for users having the newest iOS and Android Beta versions. In order to check the new feature, a user is required to put in the two .20.50.25 iOS beta update from TestFlight for iOS users and a couple of .20.133 beta from Google Play for Android users. All the participants got to download the beta updates to hitch a gaggle call otherwise it might not be possible for them to use the new feature.
Here are alternative ways to line up a gaggle video turn WhatsApp-
Open WhatsApp and choose the group that you simply want to talk with then tap the decision button. If your group has only participants, WhatsApp will directly start the decision but if the participants are quite the older limit, WhatsApp will ask which contacts you would like to feature. However, if you’ve got participants who aren’t saved in your contacts, WhatsApp won’t add them during a group call.
Another way of starting a gaggle call is by opening the Calls tab, then tap the decision button, then select the New group call option provided. When you tap it, you’ll get a choice to select the contacts you would like to feature to your call. All this might be avoided even making a gaggle.
The easiest thanks to starting a gaggle call are to easily make a replacement group and add the participants that you simply want to talk with. This way the group call starts automatically whenever you tap the decision button without you having to manually add people whenever you create a call.
WhatsApp is gradually rolling out the feature for beta users so if you didn’t get the feature even after updating to latest versions of iOS and Android Beta, don’t fret it will come to you slowly.
