Now enjoy with 256 members in WhatsApp Group Chats
A very famous and giant chatting application, WhatsApp has a new update to its messaging app which the increases the number of people one can have in a group chat. The new update allows for 256 members which was limited to 100 prior to the update. The update is available to both Android and iOS users, but its yet to show up on Windows and BlackBerry. Users can can create the group chat like they did before but only advantage being the ability to add 256 members.
The update has arrives just few days after the messaging company announced that it has more 1 billion monthly active users and it also dropped its $1 annual subscription fee in an attempt to bring more businesses on the platform. While the new update won’t bring any monumental changes to user experience, it could well be a good selling point in the business domain. The ability to reach up to 256 members (colleagues or friends) at a time would serve as a great option.
This alteration seems to be triggered by WhatsApp’s version 2.12.437, though some users on this exact release aren’t seeing it yet. So there might be a server-side switch that’s flipped for some but not all. There’s no telling if this will stick in future beta releases, or when WhatsApp will move it to the official Play Store release, but at least now we know that the service is exploring options to allow for larger groups. Now enjoy this feature to chat with 256 members simultaneously.
