WhatsApp May Allow more users in a Group Video Call Soon to take on Zoom.

Video Call

WhatsApp is working on a new feature that is going to allow more users in a group call. WhatsApp is trying to add this feature soon to take on Google Duo and Zoom. Due to the lockdown in many countries, people are using these platforms for video meetings and online classes with dozens of people at a time. As we all know that WhatsApp is limited with only four participants in a single video call but WhatsApp’s latest Android beta suggests that the limit is going to increase in the future update.  

WhatsApp features tracker WABetaInfo has published a post about the features that it has discovered in WhatsApp v2.20.128 beta and WhatsApp v2.20.129 for Android. The WhatsApp v2.20.128 beta update for Android suggests that the limit for Group Call will be extended from four people. The feature is still in testing mode and not available for users. As now it is almost known about the increase in the limit of participants to Group call but there is no clear information about the number of participants that will be allowed on the group call when it rolled out. Till today WhatsApp supports only four users at a time in a particular Group Call.  

There is no official release date of this feature from the parent company, Facebook. The tracker also warned a few issues related to the latest beta update and its Group Calls feature. This feature was spotted earlier in WhatsApp v2.20.50.23 beta iOS.

Later, WhatsApp has released another beta version v2.20.129 for Android. This version informs that calls will be secured with end-to-end encryption.
