Some days ago, I’ve announced that something new was coming in WhatsApp.
I hope to give good news soon about WhatsApp. But in the meantime, how are you and people in your country? #Covid19

Today I can finally announce our exclusive: is planning to extend the limit of participants in a voice or video group call!
This is a decision already made. Actually it’s possible to have group calls with 4 participants (including you) but WhatsApp, probably due to the concerns for the Covid-19 and the fact that more users are using group calls, has decided to extend that limit to allow calls with more participants.
What will be the new limit? We can say that it
will be an even number. Probably 6, maybe 8. 10, 12?
When WhatsApp decides to release the feature, we will be ready to tell the new limit and update notes. You should know now that all participants will have to be on the most recent WhatsApp version for iOS and Android to be able to participate in a bigger group call.
