WhatsApp

Key Specifications:

  • WhatsApp will soon let you add up to 1024 members to a group
  • This feature is currently under beta testing
  • The platform is also working on new ways to handle large groups

Instant Messaging Platform WhatsApp keeps on adding new functionalities to make the platform more engaging. In May, the company increased the group size to 512 people and added the ability to share files that are up to 2GB in size. And now, WABetaInfo noticed that the group size has doubled again.

Yes, you heard correctly! Soon WhatsApp will let its users have up to 1024 members as part of one group. The option has made its way to the beta version of WhatsApp for Android and iOS this week, which means that a public release is likely to happen in the coming months.

The group’s feature is a star of WhatsApp. It lets multiple people engage in the same subject. The most popular ones are family WhatsApp groups, work WhatsApp groups, and even groups where people share common interests in movies, sports, and more.

WhatsApp Groups can now have 1024 people

By announcing this feature, WhatsApp comes one step closer to Telegram, which allows for massive groups of several hundred thousand people. WhatsApp allowed users to only add up to 256 members in a group conversation for the longest time. This limit was bumped up to 512 participants only a couple-odd months ago, along with the rollout of a new WhatsApp calling UI and up to 32 participants in a voice call.

However, managing such big groups is difficult. But there’s good news on that front as well. WABetaInfo also claims that WhatsApp is working on new tools that should give admins more ways to handle large groups. These include a membership approval system as well as a list of pending group participants, which allows group admins to see all of the people that are asking to join the group and approve them all at once.
