WhatsApp seems to be planning to increase the number of users in group audio and video calls. WhatsApp Beta watchers claim to have discovered a revealing string of code in the app’s Android beta version 2.2.128. Beta apps are just some trial versions of the actual WhatsApp version. This development is most likely prompted by a sudden, sharp rise in video calling during the pandemic.
WhatsApp currently allows only four participants in group audio and video calls. Apps like Skype and Zoom allow a much larger number of participants. However, there is no word on WhatsApp’s new group calling limit yet.
