WhatsApp Video and Audio Call Will Soon Have 8 Participants: Facebook Announces

Facebook Announces

They are no more rumors, it is the truth that Facebook is arranging to connect 8 participants while making Whatsaap audio or video call. The current limit of persons in WhatsApp is four, very soon it is going to be 8 participants. This new feature has already been introduced to the beta version of the application. These calls will remain end-to-end encrypted, meaning no one else can view or listen to them, not even WhatsApp or Facebook like it was earlier.

That’s in stark contrast to the also just unveiled Messenger Rooms, which don’t come with end-to-end encryption. On the other hand, Rooms does allow for up to 50 people to be on a call.

Unfortunately, Facebook hasn’t shared a specific launch timeline for the new maximum limit of participants for WhatsApp. Previous clues found in beta versions of the app implied that all of the 8 participants would have to use the latest iteration of the app, once the functionality launches in the wild. We’ll have to wait and see if that pans out.
