WhatsApp, the popular messaging app owned by Meta, is introducing a new feature to enhance the user experience. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is rolling out an improved calling feature that allows users on iOS to initiate group calls with up to 31 participants. By updating to the latest version (23.21.72) on the App Store, users can now include more people in their group calls from the beginning.
Previously, WhatsApp allowed group calls with up to 32 participants, but users were limited to selecting only 15 contacts at the start. With this latest update, users can now have up to 32 participants in their group calls right from the start, making the calling experience smoother and more convenient.
If you haven’t received this feature yet, it is recommended to regularly check for updates on the App Store and the TestFlight app. While the official changelog does not specify the distribution timeline, some accounts may receive the feature in the upcoming weeks.
Initially, the group call feature was introduced in the WhatsApp for Android beta, so it is expected to roll out to Android users in the coming days.
WhatsApp is constantly working on offering new features to its users. Recently, the app introduced the ability to have two accounts logged in simultaneously within the official app. The company also announced support for passkeys for Android users.
In addition to these updates, the Meta family, which includes WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram, welcomed a new AI Assistant last month. This AI Assistant provides real-time information and allows users to generate images from text prompts in seconds.
WhatsApp continues to prioritize user experience and is committed to providing new and improved features to its global user base. Stay tuned for more exciting updates from WhatsApp.
