To rival zoom, WhatsApp has pushed out new updates for iPhone users that increase the group call limit. The update will allow iPhone users to hold a group call with up to eight participants, instead of the usual four participant limit.
The company said days ago that Android and iPhone users will get the increased group call limit soon, however, it is now present for iPhone users. The increased limit goes in-hand to rival Zoom video calls as it is said to be unsafe with people’s data.
Increasing of the Whatsapp Group call limit was spotted on WhatsApp v2.20.50 for iPhone, also, the changelog noted that both voice and video calls now support up to eight participants.
To use this feature, all participants have to be on the latest version of WhatsApp. It is recommended to install the update as soon as you receive it. If you haven’t turned on auto-update on your iPhone then you should go and check manually in the App Store and install the update.
How to make a Whatsapp group call
To startup Whatsapp group call on Android and iPhone is the same procedure. You need to open the desired group with whom you wish to interact with and click on the call button on the top right.
If there are more than eight participants in the group, WhatsApp will ask which contacts you wish to call, otherwise, the call will be directly started. Group participants whose numbers aren’t saved in your phone won’t be added in the call.
