On a Facebook Post Social media giant CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced an impending change to the WhatsApp group call.
Zuckerberg wrote in his Facebook post that (translated) “More than 70,000 million people use WhatsApp and Messenger to make calls. Calling has doubled since the Kovid-19 outbreak began in many countries.”
WhatsApp chief Will Cathart also said in a tweet that the changes would be released to Android and iPhone users next week. This means that the next stable version update of WhatsApp will bring this new change and users who download it will be able to make group calls with eight people instead of four.
Zuckerberg highlighted Messenger rooms in his Facebook post, as well as announced several new features from other Facebook products. A virtual room is being added to Facebook Messenger, allowing chat app users to interact with more than 50 people at once.
