You Can Initiate Group Calls With Up To 31 Participants On WhatsApp
With the latest update holding up the v22.214.171.124 number, the users finally get the ability to start group calls by picking up to 32 people, including the one who initiated the call. However, through the previous update, the brand introduced the ability to make group calls of up to 32 participants. Still, the users initially had a selection limit of 15 contacts only while creating such a call.
But to enhance the user’s experience, the company rolled out a new update allowing users to instantly start large group calls by choosing up to 32 people, including him.
Apart from this, some minor tweaks are also noticed after upgrading the app with the version number mentioned above. Call links no longer appear, which now only indicates that calling one or more contacts is possible. Also, the floating action button also gets updated with a plus icon.
For now, the update is only available to some of the beta testers, as mentioned above, who get the update through the Play Store. In the future update, these improvements will be available to all within a week.
