WhatsApp: you will soon be able to video call up to 7 people at the same time

Do you find it annoying that only four people can participate in a video and audio call on WhatsApp? Calling up to 7 people is now possible with the 2.20.133 beta available on Google Play for Android and the edition for iOS on TestFlight. However, all users must have these beta versions to take advantage of this feature, as it is not available in the stable version of WhatsApp.

The functionality is already available in the WhatsApp beta.

The increasing number of call participants on WhatsApp is being beta tested during containment as more and more users of communication applications are using WhatsApp. Conversations with up to 8 participants allow the application to remain competitive with the competition, including Skype, Zoom, or FaceTime for iOS devices.

Mark Zuckerberg makes sure that WhatsApp runs smoothly during peak periods. Since the start of containment, service usage has doubled. The operators have also noted that WhatsApp has seen more traffic per day than in the New Year, according to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. As the number of callers increases, the challenge will be to keep the servers afloat, despite the difficulties Facebook may face in terms of human resources with the implementation of teleworking in the company.

At the same time, WhatsApp is strengthening its fight against the spread of infox. Message transfer is limited to one conversation while messages not coming from known contacts are marked for easy retrieval.

No date has been set for the stable version of WhatsApp that offers video and audio calling for up to 8 participants, although it is likely that this edition will soon be deployed on the smartphones of the chat application's 2 billion users.
