Only last week, news came that WhatsApp is going to bring a great update for its users soon, which will make the video calling experience on the AppApp even better. At the same time, this update from WhatsApp has released in India as well. WhatsApp has increased the group calling limit. With this feature rolled out in India, Whats App users will now be able to make group calls with up to 8 people at a time. This calling service will be available on both voice call and video call.
WhatsApp Group Call Limit
Facebook authorised What’s App has announced to update its group calling feature in India by sending a press release. What’s App has told that from today on April 29, WhatsApp users will be able to have live video chats with eight people and with this, eight people can add to voice calling as well. Let me tell you that till now only four people could join a group calling on WhatsApp. But now eight people can talk at a time.
Video Calling Features
Here, let us tell you that to use the video calling feature of 8 users of WhatsApp. All eight users must have the AppApp updated. If a user’s AppApp is not updated, then it will not be able to add to the video call window of 8 users. The use of the feature will be the same as before. Previously where only four people could join a video chat window, now eight people can make group video calls together in that window. WhatsApp has released its new update on both Android and iOS versions.
The use of video calling has increased drastically during the lockdown in the country. From single calling to group video calls and video conferencing are being done continuously. During this time, the use of WhatsApp of many video chats is becoming immensely high. Let us know that in the past, WhatsApp had also informed that due to the reduction of the message forward limit on the AppApp, the spread of fake news has also reduced by up to 70 per cent.
WhatsApp vs Zoom App
- First of all, let us tell you that while WhatsApp is an instant messaging app. Zoom App has got the status of a video conferencing app.
- WhatsApp is being used by more than 1 billion people in 180 countries today. While access to the Zoom App is far away from the ordinary people, and its main reason is that this AppApp has to made for professional use.
- On Whats App, only up to 8 people can video chat. At the same time, up to 100 people can add to a video call at a time on the Zoom App.
- WhatsApp is completely free to use. At the same time, the Zoom app is freemium. Freemium means Free + Premium. Here you can use many features of the App for free, but to use some functions. You will have to buy premium access to this AppApp by paying money.
- The most significant difference between these two is that WhatsApp is an end-to-end encrypted app, but it is not so with Zoom App.
End-to-end encryption is where a link connects the sender and receiver of the message. And no third person can see the news apart from them. Words shared on WhatsApp are limited to two people, but this is not the case with the Zoom app. Any third party can see and use your message in it.
