WhatsApp has made some changes to the way the app works. As a result of these changes, it’s much easier to make a WhatsApp Group Call (conference call).
Before these changes were implemented, a user would have had to start a 1 on 1 call, then add additional callers.
There was no option to begin a group call at once. Now, the user interface has been modified to give you the ability to start a group call with just a few taps.
How To Create Group:
With the new user interface, you can open the app then tap on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner of the display screen.
Then tap New group then you must add participants to the group. To do this, you must tap the contacts to add them to the group you would like to call.
After opening the app, you can create a new group from the CHATS or CALLS tab. To do this, you must tap the green circle at the bottom of the display screen on the right.
Then tap New group to add participants to the group.
How To Make A WhatsApp Group Call:
After you have created the group you must tap the video or voice button to make the call, depending on what type of call you would like to make.
Group Call Limit:
The group call limit is four people at once. This is significantly less than Facebook Messenger which supports up to 50 people or Apple’s FaceTime which supports up to 32 people.
Nevertheless, the group call feature is relatively new, it was launched at the end of July 2018.
There’s a good chance that this feature will be able to support more than four people when the app gets updated in the future.
Until that happens the group call feature is very useful because it provides a way for you to talk on the phone without using any minutes from your cell phone plan.
For best results, WhatsApp has stated that everyone who would like to use the group call feature should have a good internet connection.
A good internet connection is necessary because the overall call quality will depend on the person with the weakest internet connection.
You can also enjoy extra features like freezing last seen, sending cool emojis and huge files on WhatsApp plus.
