This year, WhatsApp has added a lot of new features. It just gained the ability to send messages quickly and without saving them to unidentified numbers, and it is now developing a new group call function for Android. The ability to hold group calls online with up to 32 people was recently added to WhatsApp. To learn more about it, keep reading.
WhatsApp for Android New Group Call Feature
Based on a new WABetaInfo report, WhatsApp has started to release the ability to add up to 15 people to a group call at once on Android. This is available as part of the WhatsApp Beta for Android 184.108.40.206 version update.
You can now choose a maximum of 15 individuals when creating a group call, as seen in the screenshot up top. Moreover, it is not required that they join simultaneously. As long as the group call is active, they are welcome to join at any moment.
But allow me to elaborate. You can initiate a group call using this new function by choosing 15 people at once (which was 7 initially). The overall number of participants, however, is still up to 32. For instance, if I want to make a new group call right away, I can choose 15 of my contacts to be the call’s primary participants. Nonetheless, if necessary, I will still be able to add or approve 17 more participants.
Only a few group of fortunate WhatsApp beta testers have so far had access to this new function. A more extensive public rollout, though, is about to come! As soon as this feature becomes available to me, I can’t wait to test it out. And I’m confident that you will enjoy this function as well, whether you use it to make a call to your friends or accept business calls directly from your WhatsApp account.
