Whatsapp has officially rolled out the group call feature for voice and video calls. At this time, group calls will be limited to 4 people at a time.
To start a group call, simply initiate a regular voice or video call with another person and then in the upper right corner, an “Add Participant” icon will appear. When a 3rd or 4th person receive the phone call, they’ll be able to see all the participants in the group call before having to answer.
From the Whatsapp Blog:
Over the last couple years, people have enjoyed making voice and video calls on WhatsApp. In fact, our users spend over 2 billion minutes on calls per day. We’re excited to announce that group calls for voice and video are coming to WhatsApp starting today.
You can make a group call with up to four people total – anytime and anywhere. Just start a one-on-one voice or video call and tap the new “add participant” button in the top right corner to add more contacts to the call.
Group calls are always end-to-end encrypted, and we’ve designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions. The feature is currently rolling out on the iPhone and Android versions of our app.
If the Add Participant icon does not appear, you will have to go to the Whatsapp app in the Play Store/App Store and hit “Update.”
