Recently, WhatsApp revealed that users may now simultaneously add up to 15 individuals to a group video call. When compared to the prior cap of 7, this is a huge increase. The new functionality is already included in WhatsApp for Android’s beta version, and it will likely be made available to all users in the upcoming weeks.
Go to the Calls option in the WhatsApp app to begin a 15-person group video call. Choose “New group call” after tapping the “New call” button. You may then choose up to 15 contacts from your contact list to join the call. All 15 participants will be able to see and hear each other as soon as the call begins. For WhatsApp users who wish to talk to more people at once, the inclusion of the maximum of 15 participants per group video conversation is a good one. For enterprises and organizations who need to host sizable video conferences, this functionality will be very helpful.
While beginning a new video call on WhatsApp, users may now add up to 15 individuals. According to WABetaInfo, this functionality has begun to roll out to WhatsApp beta users on Android. Android versions 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, and 126.96.36.199 are said to support this functionality. Android users who are using the WhatsApp beta version can upgrade their apps to obtain the newest functionality. Due to the beta status, there is a chance that not all users will have access to it at once.
About the new group video call functionality, take in mind the following additional points:
- If there are too many participants in the call, the call quality could suffer.
- A video conference may only have 32 active participants at once.
- Only the Android beta version of WhatsApp has the capability at this time.
