Whatsapp Group Will Soon Have Upto 1024 Members! Testing Starts In This Country
Good news, WhatsApp will let you increase the number of participants that can be added in a group to 512.
It was previously 256 members.
This feature currently is limited to select beta testers.
To check whether this feature is available for your account, have WhatsApp installed.
How it will look
Feature is available for your account should the configured limit for your account be in this section.
Report says, ” If you still see “512”, don’t worry: since it is a small test as happened in Argentina with the feature that lets you share media files up to 2GB in size, it might take a while before reaching all other WhatsApp account, so nothing is wrong with your account.”
The company is also developing new tools for better management of such large groups.
So if the feature becomes active, a list of pending participants and approval system within the app.
WaBetainfo informs that list of pending participants right within group info which will only be visible to group admins.
What else can you do?
They can see a list of pending participants and accordingly approve them as members.
Other recent features added include letting users initiate a call links feature in the app that will let users create a call link under the Calls tab.
This is similar to the Google Meets or Zoom call in which you can create a sharable link for a call that can be shared with friends and family for a group video call.
