Lately, the pandemic has caused more people to turn to WhatsApp video calling like never before. As per WhatsApp, “Group calling has been particularly useful, and our users have asked to connect with more people at once. Starting today, we’re doubling the number of participants you can have on a WhatsApp video or voice call from 4 to 8 people at a time.”
