    WhatsApp Supports 8 Participants For Group Video And Voice Calls

    • Great news! For friends, family, and WhatsApp users.
    • Now WhatsApp supports eight users for Video Calls and Voice calls.



    Facebook own messaging APP WhatsApp is able to have group voice and video calls with up to eight people on WhatsApp. As before, these calls are secured with end-to-end encryption so no one else can view or listen to your private conversation, not even WhatsApp.

    "The Covid-19 pandemic has meant that many of usage isolated from friends and family. As a result, we see that people all over the world are turning to voice and video calling on WhatsApp more that even before," the company said in the statement.

    “Group calling has been particularly useful and our users have asked to connect with more people at once. Starting today, we are doubling the number of participants you can have on a WhatsApp video or voice call from four to eight people at a time,” it said.

    Over the last month, people on average are spending over 15 billion minutes talking each day on WhatsApp calls, well above a typical day before the pandemic.

    End-to-End Encryption Calls

    As with written messages, the Facebook-owned firm said that all the calls were protected with end-to-end encryption. “We have built group calling in a way that makes it available for as many users as possible, including people on lower-end devices and slow network conditions,” it said.

    To access the new, higher participant limit on WhatsApp calls, all participants in a call need to update to the latest version of WhatsApp available on iPhone or Android today.

    New Stickers Added



    We’re excited to work with The World Health Organization to launch the “Together at Home” sticker pack that will help people stay connected throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Stickers like these can be funny, educational and universal, breaking through language, age, and other barriers.

    The “Together at Home” sticker pack is available now within WhatsApp, including with text localized for 9 languages - Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.
