Users of WhatsApp May Create Groups With Up To 512 Members


A new version of WhatsApp has already begun to trickle out to beta testers.

A significant update to the messaging service now allows users to create groups with up to 512 members. The business releases new features on schedule and doesn’t take too long to implement them. Initially made available to a small number of customers, the new group size limit functionality was formally introduced back in May. All users of the beta version are now receiving it.

The current group size limit is 256 people and now with the latest update, one will be able to create a bigger group with up to 512 participants. Do keep in mind that the update has been rolled out to Android and iOS beta testers of WhatsApp. It is currently unknown when this feature will be released for the stable version of WhatsApp.

If you are a beta tester, WhatsApp versions for Android and for iOS both have new functionality. You may register for the beta program here even if you are not a beta tester. However, this messaging app’s beta program is often filled. You may still try your luck, though.

This was one of the most often requested features, according to WhatsApp.

According to a recent official statement from WhatsApp, “one of the top requests we’ve constantly heard is the opportunity to add additional people to a conversation, so today we’re gently rolling out the ability to join up to 512 individuals to a group.”

Additionally, WhatsApp is developing a feature that would let users download all of their chat histories from a third-party provider and save it locally on their smartphones. Users have the option to back up all communications to Google Drive at the moment, but you don’t have complete control.
