WhatsApp Enables Users to Add Up To 32 Participants On Single Group Call

WhatsApp is a popular social media messaging platform known for bringing out updates that enhance users' experiences. In a move to make a group calling feature better, the Meta-owned app has introduced an update it will support up to 32 participants in one group call. Several features are lined up to be submitted by the company, such as reactions, enlarged size limits for files sent by participants, a community function, etc.

 As per a report from 9To5Mac, the latest update that will allow 32 users in one call is rolling out with version 22.8.80 of the app. This update includes a new interface with a waveform, speaker highlight, and social audio layout. Furthermore, with this update, the design for voice message bubbles and info screens for contacts and groups has also been updated for iOS users.

The community feature has been rumored for quite a while now and has finally been unveiled. In a blog post, WhatsApp stated that with the help of WhatsApp communities, WhatsApp users will now receive updates sent to the whole Community and easily organize smaller discussions groups on what matters to them. Furthermore, admins will find new tools for their character, such as announcement messages sent to everyone, and will also have command over which groups are to be included.

A recent report from WABetaInfo also proposes that the developers are readying Reactions 2.0 to its desktop version. Users in a group will now be able to react with an emoji in the group chats without needing to send a large number of text messages. Another feature that has been launched is Admin Delete.

The Admin Delete feature will give the admin the control to delete any message in the group that they find problematic or delinquent from everyone's chat. It is noted that even though these features have been introduced, it might take some time for the company to make them available for all users.
