WhatsApp video call limit

WhatsApp group calls

Did you know that it is possible to make a group video call on WhatsApp? When you pick up a group call, the screen will show the participants, and the first listed contact will be the participant that added you to the call. These video calls are an amazing feature which you can utilize for instance on the New Year’s Eve, by calling to 7 of your relatives/friends at once you can easily pass them wishes all at once instead of calling them one by one. That safes a huge amount of time, and a group has a very nice atmosphere. Moreover you can utilize such calls for business purposes or school e.g. working on a project when you don’t necessarily have access to computer/skype. This feature is extremely usefull during the times of COVID-19 Pandemic.
