WhatsApp Enhances Group Calling Experience: May Support Calls with Up to 31 Participants

by November 1, 2023 0 comments

WhatsApp is releasing a new iOS update that improves the group calling experience on the popular messaging network. Previously, the Meta-owned chat service expanded the number of group call participants to 32, allowing more users to join a call. Once, users could only invite 15 group members to join a call. According to details supplied by a feature tracker, users should be able to invite up to 31 group participants to join a call after installing the latest WhatsApp for iOS version.

According to feature tracker WABetaInfo, the most recent stable version of WhatsApp for iOS 23.22.72 includes one significant change: the ability to start a group conversation with up to 31 members. The app’s changelog does not explicitly mention the increased limit on calling group members, but it does contain other recently added features and functions.

WhatsApp latest update

With the latest update, WhatsApp allows you to start a group call with up to 31 members, making it easier to start a group call than in previous program versions. Previously, you could only initiate a group call with up to 15 people; other users could join the conference manually.

It is not confirmed that the option to create a new group call on the app allowed for up to 31 members because the most recent version available in India at the time of writing was version 23.21.79 — the version released last week. If the feature does not appear activated on your phone after updating to the latest edition, you may have to wait a few days (or weeks) until the new functionality is added to your account or app.

WhatsApp has been rolling out new features

Over the last few weeks, WhatsApp has been rolling out new features, such as the ability to log in with multiple accounts on the same smartphone and support for passkeys on Android. Users with two phone numbers can join up for WhatsApp with their second number using the same app for the first time.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp for Android is making it much easier for users to log back in with support for passkeys and their fingerprint – a secure type of authentication aimed to remove the usage of passwords and employ public key cryptography to protect user information. Passkey support has begun to roll out on Android, and the feature interacts with Google’s password manager – no word on whether this feature will be accessible on iOS in a future release.
