Earlier this month, a beta build of WhatsApp hinted that the app might soon allow more than four participants in a group audio or video call. But so far, there has been no clarity as to how many additional participants WhatsApp will allow.

Facebook has finally cleared the mystery and has revealed that WhatsApp users will soon be able to make group audio and video calls with up to eight people. The accompanying screenshot shows a symmetrical tiled interface with one square designated for each participant.

“Soon you’ll be able to have group voice and video calls with up to eight people on WhatsApp,” a press note said. However, Facebook has not revealed when the increased participant limit for WhatsApp group calls will go live for users.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
