After multiple rumors and leaks from the last week, WhatsApp has finally announced that it is increasing the group call limits to up to eight people. Until now, the maximum of four people allowed on a WhatsApp call, but with this change, eight people can chat on a single WhatsApp call.
The change was first spotted in the recent beta version of WhatsApp Messenger on both Android and iPhone, and now Facebook, the parent company of WhatsApp has officially announced that this change is coming to the stable version of WhatsApp.

In many countries, calling has doubled since the Covid-19 outbreak began. o help you stay connected with your whole family and groups of friends, we’re doubling the number of people who can participate in a group video call from 4 to 8 on WhatsApp.”
