WhatsApp users can now make video calls with a greater number of participants. The group video call feature can now be done by eight people simultaneously. Previously, WhatsApp only allowed four users to group video calls simultaneously. However, increasing the number of participants to this feature cannot be enjoyed by all users.
This feature only visited users of WhatsApp beta in versions 2.20.133 (Android) and 22.214.171.124 (iOS). Based on our observation, if you want to do a group video call with more than four participants, all users must use the same version of WhatsApp Beta. If not, at this time the eight person calls cannot yet be made.
When users try to add more participants than the specified number, WhatsApp will provide information that reads “You can only select 7 participants”.
How to group video calls 8 people
The group call feature can be accessed via the “Calls” tab> the “Call” button and the “New group call” menu. In this menu, users can choose whoever they want to be invited to group calls together and click the “Call” icon to make voice or “Video” calls.
Summarized from WABetaInfo, Wednesday (4/22/2020), it should be noted, this feature only visited WhatsApp Beta users and is not yet available for regular WhatsApp users. Users can register to try Whatsapp Beta by visiting the following link (Android) and the following link (iOS).
In addition, Android users can also download the WhatsApp Beta APK file on a number of third-party application providers, such as APKMirror, App, and others. However, Google does not recommend users download and install files outside of the Google Play Store platform.
Thus, if you are in doubt and worry about security issues, it is better to wait for this feature to be officially released to all WhatsApp users equally.
