WhatsApp Expands Its Group Video Chats Up To 8 Members

The popular Instant Messaging App, WhatsApp Expands Its Group Video Chats Up To 8 Members globally.

The WhatsApp group video chats as expanded now allows you to add up to 8 members when making a video chats.

Earlier this month, Google Duo expanded its group video members to over 12 participants that can be added. WhatsApp is about to follow this innovation and has finally rolled out this feature to the public.

Earlier, WhatsApp started offering video calls of up to 4 people and now it plans to extend the limit twofold. However, given the feature is still in beta, it might take some time to reach all users.

 

There’s also the limitation of people using an old version, something that is probably taking care during the test process.

How to use this feature

To enjoy using WhatsApp group video chats with up to 8 members, one needs to install the 2.20.50.25 iOS beta update from TestFlight and the 2.20.133 beta from Google Play Store for Android users. Other participants also need to be on the same versions otherwise they cannot be added in the group call. While you’re in a call, WhatsApp also shows a new header, informing that the call is end-to-end encrypted.

In summary, WhatsApp is rolling out the new limit to add up to 8 members as participant in group calls, for iOS and Android beta user.

Other participants for the group video chats also need to be on the same versions otherwise — they cannot be added in the group call.
