WhatsApp group video call

The Whatsapp video calling is a popular feature on Whatsapp. To add to it, Whatsapp introduced the group calling feature in 2018. This enhanced feature of the Whatsapp video call lets you make group calls up to four members at a time. Previously, you need a third-party app to make group video calls but now, the Facebook owned app has brought all possible abilities to it to make users stay within the app for all of their needs over communication. So you can make a group video call on whatsapp over WiFi or mobile data and Whatsapp claims that they have made the feature in such a way that it works perfectly even on slow networks. Today let us see how to make Whatsapp group video calls on Android and iOS.

User privacy is the top priority of Whatsapp and so the group calls are end-to-end encrypted like the Whatsapp chats. As it is developed as a part of the Whatsapp video calling feature, it follows the same pattern as making a WhatsApp video call. You can make a group video call or you can also convert a normal video call to a group video call by adding participants.

TF FACT: Whatsapp support only a maximum of four persons in a group video call which is way more less when compared to its pals. Facebook Messenger supports group video calls of up to 50 members. Whereas Skype supports up to 25. Meanwhile, Snapchat supports 16 participants on a call and Apple’s FaceTime works up to 32 people.
