WhatsApp users spend over 2 billion minutes on calls per day. To make the calling experience even better, WhatsApp today announced support for voice and video group calls for Android and iOS users. For now, WhatsApp will allow users to make a group call with up to four people.
Here’s how it works:
- Start a one-on-one voice or video call.
- Tap the new “add participant” button in the top right corner to add more contacts to the call.
Just like WhatsApp text messages, Group calls are always end-to-end encrypted. The feature is currently rolling out to users globally.
