Earlier this month, WhatsApp announced group voice and video calls for group chats which were limited to the number of participants to four or less.
According to WABetainfo, the latest Android beta version of WhatsApp contains code suggesting that users with the latest version of the app will be able to hold calls with more people.
There is not a specific number given, although WABetaInfo says it will be an even number, adding that the new feature will be available within the next weeks.
WhatsApp group video & audio call feature had been introduced in 2018 almost two years ago which has a four-user limit.
It is pertinent to mention here that a large number of people are working from home across the world and had to rely on video calling apps since many counties had imposed lockdown.
These allow up to 250 users to participate at once, although some of them require paid subscriptions.
