Sick of being that 5th or 6th friend that never gets to join in on the video calls because Whatsapp only allows for 4 participants at a time? Well, think again. Whatsapp has a hot shot new update for you. It now allows 8 people to video call together, making life in self quarantine a whole lot better. And what’s even more amazing – it’s available to both iOs and Android users.
The iOS update is available now from the App Store, and will likely show up as an automatic update for most users. On Android, the latest version does not appear to be available from the Google Play store (yet), however according to WABetaInfo on Twitter, it is available via the web download for Android.
In order for this to work with your friends and family, they too will have to be running the latest version of WhatsApp on their respective devices. So download the new update, and catch up with friends and family.
