WhatsApp has raised the number of group call participants from four to eight, once its latest version is updated on Android and iOS. This feature will be particularly helpful during this period as many people are using group voice and video call platforms.
Once a group call has more than four participants, WhatsApp will ask the caller for the additional participants’ contact number before starting the call.
Participants that are not saved in the call originator’s address book will not be added to the call.
If the latest WhatsApp version has been updated but the new feature is not visible, consider backing up chat history and reinstalling WhatsApp.
