How to make WhatsApp video calls of up to 8 people


in this article we are going to talk about how to make video call up to 8 people on Whatsapp After WhatsApp started updating its service to allow calls from up to eight participants , the novelty now reaches all beta users to allow them to call and video call a larger group of users. Specifically, WhatsApp has doubled the number of participants. And it is not difficult to activate this new function.






Group video calls are causing a sensation in this confinement. And it is not surprising since they allow us to dilute distances and get closer to our loved ones , the only way we have to leave home and visit them. Zoom , Houseparty or Google Meet , many are the services that are used when the group of people is large. Although now WhatsApp also works: the platform has activated group calls and video calls from up to eight participants . Do you want to try them? It is really simple, we teach you.



Yesterday, Tuesday, we reported that WhatsApp had started activating group calls and video calls for up to eight people. Of course, it was in a very small group of users: while one of our mobiles had the possibility, the rest kept the limit of four . And that changed after the publication of the new beta on Google Play: WhatsApp activates the eight participants with version 2.20.135: just install it and you're done.


 Get Up to 8 People on a WhatsApp Video Call


The process is very simple: with a couple of steps you will be chatting with micro and video in a group of up to eight people. You just have to do the following:



  • Download the latest WhatsApp beta, which corresponds to version 2.20.135. If you did not sign up for the beta ( you can still do it on Android ) download the application from the Apk Mirror .
  • All participants in the calls must have the latest beta : make sure before establishing communication.
  • Open WhatsApp and go to the calls section.
  • Click the '+' at the bottom right, then 'New group call'.
  • Choose the seven contacts you will call. Once selected, click on the phone icon or the camera icon, depending on the communication you want (calls or video calls).
  • Communication will be established and you will all go to a grid of up to eight thumbnails (in the case of video calls). If all eight are not yet completed you can invite more participants.






  • Press the '+' (bottom right if you have an Android and top right if you have an iPhone) and then 'New group call'.
  • Choose the seven contacts you will call. Once selected, click on the phone icon or the camera icon, depending on the communication you want (calls or video calls).
  • Communication will be established and you will all go to a grid of up to eight thumbnails (in the case of video calls). If the eight are not yet completed, you can invite more participants.



We have been testing the video calls to eight and we have found that its operation is adequate. Sound and video as stable as with calls to four , easy to make and with the advantage that you do not have to install new software: most people already have WhatsApp on their phone.




Remember that you can only make group calls and video calls of up to eight participants with the latest WhatsApp beta. Everyone must have it installed before calling .
