While everyone is locked inside their home amid the ongoing lockdown in the country, most of the people are using video calls to communicate with their loved ones. Looking forward to this opportunity, WhatsApp is working on the ability to allow more users to participate in a group call.
As of now, WhatsApp allows up to four participants on a group calling, but WhatsApp’s latest Android beta suggests that the limit may be increased in the future. In this way, WhatsApp might be working on to allow more users in group calls to connect with the loved ones during the time of social distancing.
WhatsApp feature hunter, WABetaInfo has shared new features that it has discovered in WhatsApp v2.20.128 beta and WhatsApp v2.20.129 beta for Android. In the WhatsApp v2.20.128 beta for Android, they discovered some strings suggesting the extended Group Call Limit. However, this feature is not enabled by the company currently, so, people will not be able to see it even if they have the latest version of WhatsApp beta for Android.
As we mentioned above, WhatsApp currently allows up to four participants to connect and chat on group calls, there is no word on the number of participants allowed on WhatsApp once this feature will be rolled out by the company. In addition to that, there is no word when this feature will be officially available on the WhatsApp beta.
Well, with this report, WABetaInfo also issued a warning that this latest beta update brings a few issues in the group call feature. So, if you use group calling frequently, you are not advised to update to this latest version of the beta. On the other hand, the WhatsApp v2.20.129 beta brings a new Call Header that informs calls are secured with end-to-end encryption.
