WhatsApp is rolling out a beta version that allows up to 8 participants in a video-audio call

WhatsApp is increasing its video-audio calling participant limit from 4 participants to 8 participants. The feature is currently only available for Beta users. During the pandemic, people are advised to stay at home. So there is a surge in Internet traffic everywhere. It was a wise thing to do since applications like zoom are taking over the video conferencing. Zoom allows up to 100 participants on a single channel/call. WhatsApp is still not even close, but it is a messaging application so even 8 participants limit is a big deal.

WhatsApp conversations are end-to-end encrypted, zoom claimed the same that their application has end-to-end encryption. However, later it was revealed that they have been sending users data to different companies including Facebook.
