Meta-owned instant messaging application WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a feature to make video calls with up to 32 people for Windows with faster speeds and improved calling.
“We explained that the app supported group video calls with up to 8 people and audio calls with up to 32 people, and that WhatsApp may increase these limits in the future to make it easier for users to experience better communication. Finally, with the latest WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2324.1.0 update, available on the Microsoft Store, some beta testers can experiment with larger video calls,” WABetainfo reported.
According to the screenshot shared by WABetainfo, some beta testers may get a message inviting them to try calling their groups. Specifically, the post mentions the ability to make video calls to contacts and groups, up to 32 people, directly from the Windows app. Previously, the ability to make audio calls with up to 32 people was available. However, with the latest update, it seems that some users can now also make video calls with up to 32 people.
The report suggests that some people may be getting a different message by mentioning 16 people support for video calling along with the ability to share the contents of their screens during a video call, previously announced with the WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2322.1.0 update . In addition, some beta testers can finally see video messages after installing the app’s latest update.
After the previous WhatsApp Desktop app became obsolete, introducing the ability to join video calls with up to 32 people seems like a great decision, according to WABetainfo.
Some beta testers who installed the latest WhatsApp beta for Windows update from the Microsoft Store now have the ability to video call up to 32 people. Don’t worry if you haven’t received this update yet as it will be gradually released to more users over the next few days.
