WhatsApp updates group calls feature

The most popular chatting platform, WhatsApp, has rolled out the latest version update, slightly tweaking one of its existing features for a better user experience.

The changes are to the WhatsApp group calls feature, WABetainfo reported.

As we know that a group call can be initiated with as many as seven participants on board, but the number can be increased to 32 after the call has been started.

“It’s worth noting that although it is possible to choose up to 15 people for the initial call, group calls can still have up to 32 participants in total,” the WhatsApp news tracker said.

The update adds to the user’s convenience, making it easier and quicker to connect with more people right away.

The feature has been made available to some beta testers and will be rolled out to even more people over the coming days.
